To make the maple green chilli sauce:

  2. Scrape the sauce into a shallow saucepan, add the maple syrup and 100ml water and bring to a simmer. 
  3. Simmer for around 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until the sauce becomes syrupy and glossy.
  4. Being careful not to burn the sauce, continue to simmer and stir constantly for 5 more minutes, until it has reduced and easily coats the back of the spoon.
  5. Pour the sauce straight into a sterilised jar.

To make the crispy tacos:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Put the tortillas straight on the wire racks of the oven.

To make the tomato sauce:

  3. Cook for 5 minutes then add the kidney beans and season with salt and pepper.


  1. Spread three tablespoons of tomato sauce on each taco.
  2. Top each with a pan-fried egg and 1 tsp of the maple green chilli sauce per taco.
  3. Garnish with chopped coriander, rocket and lime wedges.

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
