Meals to Make with Ground Beef – Beef Tacos

Beef tacos are such a fun meal! My kids love it when I make them. I simply put all of the toppings in bowls at the table and let them all assemble their own. Here is what I do for mine:

1 lb ground beef
1/2 white onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 large tomato finely chopped
2 TBS chopped cilantro
2 TBS taco seasoning
1/2 cup water
Chopped lettuce
Chopped tomatoes
Refried beans – I used canned beans that I heat
Sliced olives
Shredded Mexican blend cheese
Sour cream
Extra chopped cilantro for garnish – opt.
8 crunchy taco shells

Place the beef in a large skillet and brown it. Drain it. Return to skillet and add onions, garlic, tomato and cilantro. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Add the taco seasoning and mix well. Add the water and cook, simmering, for 10 minutes until liquid has evaporated almost completely. Place in a bowl.

Heat the beans and place in a bowl – as well as all the other toppings.
Let everyone prepare their own. I like to smear the bottom of mine with beans and add – in this order – meat, lettuce, cheese, sour cream and tomatoes. However you decide to do it, have fun!
