- 1.5 lbs of ground beef
- 1/2 tomato, diced
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 1 cup chopped lettuce
- 2 cups shredded cheese
- Sour cream
- 6-8 tortillas
Brown the ground beef and drain the fat. Add the taco seasoning and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil and let simmer until the water reduces down to your liking. Spoon the beef into a warmed tortilla with the toppings of your choice from above. Plenty of options here for toppings: cilantro, bell peppers, garlic, avocado, sweet potatoes (Annie and Mia had these).
Taco seasoning recipe: http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Homemade-Taco-Seasoning-Mix
Time to table: 30 minutes
Modifications: I halved the seasoning recipe, but you can make a full batch and freeze it for up to one year. For the toddlers we sauteed some diced sweet potato and onion and mixed that in with ground beef, cheese, tomato, and lettuce in a bowl.
Servings: Four adults, two toddlers.
Notes: We were going to have spaghetti, but since it was Cinco de Mayo Erin wanted something Mexican. Neighbor Molly suggested tacos and supplied the veggies.
