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
- shredded cheese, lettuce, diced tomatoes, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, hot sauce, black olives (optional)
- 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.
- 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.
