Recipe

I have a soft spot for a delicious ground beef taco. While their not authentic and you would be hard pressed to find anything resembling this taco in Mexico, they can be so comforting and delicious. I like to pile mine high with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, cilantro, shredded cheese, and salsa. Served up with salad, soft taco shells, these crispy baked shells, or on baked nachos – it makes a satisfying and super quick meal.

Directions

  1. Mix together the ancho chili powder, cumin, paprika, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, coriander, salt, and pepper. This makes a delicious homemade taco seasoning.
  2. Brown the beef (or turkey) in a skillet until cooked through. Drain any excess fat. If you like you could add vegetables during this step you could – diced onions, red and yellow peppers, canned and drained diced tomatoes, or diced zucchini would be delicious. Beans are also a delicious addition.
  3. Whisk together the water and cornstarch. Add to the pan along with the taco seasoning and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for 3-4 minutes until sauce thickens.
