  • Summary

    Making a ground beef taco filling ain’t rocket science. You just cook ground meat with Tex-Mex seasonings. This recipe is a little spicy, but feel free to skip the serranos and substitute a packaged taco seasoning mixture for the spices, especially if you’re cooking for kids. Many taco seasoning mixes, such as Old El Paso and Ortega, come in your choice of spicy or mild.

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 1/2 onion, chopped
    • 1/2 pound ground beef
    • 1 garlic clove, minced
    • 1 serrano chile, stemmed and chopped
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1 1/2 cups grated Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
    • 1 1/2 cups chopped tomato
    • 1 1/2 cups chopped iceberg lettuce
    • 6 taco shells
    • 1 cup Salsa Picante or favorite salsa, optional
