    1. Begin by preparing the salsa. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and cover with cling film. The flavours will develop and deepen while the chilli for the tacos is cooking.
    2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add the onion. Cook until soft and golden, about 5 minutes.
    3. Add the garlic and chilli and cook for a further 5 minutes, then stir in the Quorn and lentils and allow to cook for five minutes.
    4. Add the tomato sauce, apple and pear and simmer until tender, about 45 minutes, adding a little water if required. Add the cumin and smoked paprika.
    5. To serve, warm the taco shells for 2 minutes in a pre-heated oven.
    6. Divide the shredded lettuce among the shells then fill with the chilli.
    7. Top with the tomato salsa, 1 teaspoon soured cream and a sprinkle of grated Cheddar.


    This recipe also works great as a burrito or simply served in a wholemeal tortilla.
