Le Food Snob

It’s been a long time since I’ve made tacos for dinner. The other day I bought a pound of ground hamburger at Trader Joe’s with no real purpose for it. With a large amount of tortillas lying around the house I decided it would be a good time to try making tacos with a Homemade Taco Seasoning recipe. I’ll never buy taco seasoning from the store again!


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 3 T. Homemade Taco Seasoning
  • one small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 c. water
  • tortillas
  • shredded cheese, lettuce, diced tomatoes, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, hot sauce, black olives (optional)


  1. Brown meat and drain the fat. Add the taco seasoning and chopped onion along with water. Simmer and stir until water is absorbed – about 10 minutes.
  2. Heat tortillas and fill with ground beef and whatever fixings you prefer with your tacos.

If I would have thought about it earlier, I probably would have added a clove or two of garlic when I added the onion to the ground beef. Maybe next time I will.

My favorite way to “heat” taco shells is by browning them slightly in a frying pan over medium or medium-high heat.

This is a very fast ‘homemade’ meal that’s perfectly reheatable for leftovers the rest of the week – if there are any.
