Preparation -- 10 minutes

START preparation by dicing the bell peppers, tomato and eggplant. DRAIN liquid from the can of corn and red kidney beans. WASH and slice the spring onion, the same goes for the red pepper. 

If you like more heat, leave the seeds, otherwise, remove them. That's all there is for preparing your ground beef tacos.
