Sorry, I’m a little late to the game this week—please forgive me! 🙂
It’s true, I’m a taco fan. I love ’em! What is there to dislike? Spicy, savory, crunchy, tangy, hot, cold—it’s a taste bud’s paradise!
I do tacos a little differently though—mine are more vegetable-based. Delicious! Normally I grab one of those spice packets at the grocery store to season my taco meat, but I found a delicious recipe online and I’m never going back to those spice packets again!
Spice mixture recipe from www.Bethenny.com
1 pound lean ground beef
12-15 taco shells
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon pepper flakes
Toppings of your choice. I used shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, taco sauce, and shredded carrots.
1. Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and put over medium heat. Place ground beef in pan and cook until no longer pink. Add the remaining ingredients (except for taco shells and toppings) and sauté to warm and combine the flavors.
2. Heat taco shells according to package directions (I popped mine in the microwave for a few seconds).
3. Spoon meat mixture into shells and top with your favorite ingredients. I find that basic tacos (meat, cheese and salsa) are not very filling, so I load mine until with veggies, which add bulk, fiber and nutrients, resulting in a well-rounded meal!
