You need these tacos on your life! #Truth

For The Tacos:

  • Ground beef
  • Minced onion
  • Cornstarch
  • Taco blended cheese
  • Crunchy/crispy taco shells
  • Chopped tomatoes or pico de gallo, for topping

For the Seasoning:

Do I have to use the homemade seasoning? No. You can use your own favorite taco seasoning, homemade or package.

Can I use ground turkey instead of beef? Yes. You can also use ground chicken, if you desired.

Minced Onion: (for tacos) If desired, you can use fresh chopped/minced onions instead of the dried version.

How to Make:

  • First, make your taco seasoning. You won’t use all of it, so, keep any leftovers in a covered container/jar.
  • Then, in a skillet, brown the ground beef. If needed, drain the beef before adding anything else.
  • Once ready, add in the tomato sauce, onions, and taco seasoning. Increase your heat a bit and mix in cornstarch. Simmer it all to thicken for about 15 minutes.
  • Stack your crispy taco shells into a 9 x 13 pan. Then, fill them evenly with the cooked meat.
  • Sprinkle with cheese and bake.
