    1. Prepare the tomato salsa; mix all the ingredients together and set aside.

    2. In a small bowl mix together the soured cream and horseradish and chill until required.

    3. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and fry the onions and peppers for 5-6 minutes until soft. Transfer to a plate.

    4. Add the mince, garlic salt and paprika and dry fry for 8-10 minutes, breaking down any meaty chunks with the back of a wooden spoon. Spoon off any excess fat. Return the onions and the peppers to the pan with the mince and cook for a further 4-5 minutes. Season to taste.
