Makes: 10


  • 10 (190g packet) jumbo taco shells
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 long green chilli, deseeded, chopped
  • 400g can diced tomatoes
  • 2 x 400g cans four bean mix, drained, rinsed
  • 1/3 cup fresh coriander leaves, chopped
  • 1/3 cup sour cream and extra chopped coriander leaves, to serve
  • Guacamole

  • 1 avocado, peeled, stone removed, chopped
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Place taco shells slightly apart on tray, leaving the provided ‘wedge’ in the centre of the shells (see note). Heat for 7 minutes or until hot but not browned.
  2. Meanwhile heat oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and chilli. Cook, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes or until onion is soft. Add tomatoes, beans and 1/4 cup cold water. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until sauce has reduced. Stir in coriander.
  3. Make guacamole: Place avocado, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and Tabasco sauce in a small bowl. Mash with a fork until almost smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Divide bean mixture between taco shells. Top with guacamole and sour cream. Sprinkle with coriander. Season with pepper. Serve.

Hey, I’m new.

Following the tutorial supplied in class, you need to complete the following:

  • Create and customize your blog
  • Add a few RSS feeds
  • Write 2 – 3 new technology posts
    Each post can either be a summary, or a review of the article you have read from your RSS feeds.

Each post needs to have:
An Image
A link to the news article you have based your post upon

Here’s another site that i want you to incorporate into your Web 2.0 work: It’s a really easy to use tool that allows you to create a list of interesting articles that you have found on the Internet. You post an article on it, write a short summary of what it contains, and then tag it to make it easier to identify the sort of information that the article contains.

Here’s an example of one that I’ve started to setup:

If you’re a bit stumped for articles to include on it, check out some of the RSS feeds on the right-hand side of this page. Alternatively, you could always check out some news sites with non-technology related stories.

There’s been a recent surge in the development of smaller and cheaper alternatives to the “traditional” bulky desktop computers. Why? Well, think of the benefits: no bulky parts that use up a large percentage of the user’s workspace; cheaper components that make it easier to fix; smaller parts that reduce the amount of electricity required for operation… the list goes on. Customization has also been beefed up, with the Asus Eee PC soon to be the proud provider of 23 alternative configurations. The benefit for the consumer – more affordable choices!

This is my first official post on this blog! Exciting times… not!

I’ll be adding some reviews of a few articles that i come across, which will hopefully give you a little bit of insight into some emerging technologies and developments in the world of ICT.

Your task is to do something similar. I’ve added some news feeds onto this page which get updated on a regular basis, so everyday there’ll be new stories for you to peruse – check ’em out! After you’ve setup a WordPress or Blogger account (and picked a theme + figured out how to post), you are to write some of your own reviews, feedback or reflections on what you have learnt.

Good Luck!!!
