These Ground Beef Tacos are filled with juicy flavorful taco meat made with my homemade taco seasoning - it's an easy weeknight recipe for the whole family!
Servings 8 servings
For serving the tacos
- 8 Corn or flour tortillas
- Lettuce finely chopped
- Shredded Mexican cheese blend or cheddar cheese
- Tomatoes chopped
- Chopped red onions
Heat the olive oil in skillet over medium high heat. Add the ground beef and cook until browned, about 5-7 minutes. Drain any fat.
Add the chili powder, cumin, dried oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper, tomato paste and water. Stir to combine and continue cooking over medium-low heat until the sauce has thickened, about 3-5 minutes
Serve warm over tortillas with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and red onions, or your other desired toppings.
Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last up to 4 days and can be reheated on the stovetop. To reheat, add a splash of water so the taco meat doesn't dry out.
Freezing Instructions: Allow the taco meat to cool down completely, then place in freezer-safe storage containers or ziplock bags for up to 3 months.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.
- Instead of tomato paste and water, you can simply use tomato sauce.
- Instead of chili powder, you can use paprika.
