How to Prepare Quick and Easy Tacos

4 Oct

This is very quick and easy to do: 15 minutes tops to prepare and cook.

What you need:

  • 1/2 – 3/4 kilograms ground beef (ground pork works too)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 pack McCormick Taco mix
  • onion
  • tomato
  • lettuce (or cabbage, it’s all up to you)

1.) In a pan, mix taco mix with water.

2.) Put beef in the mixture and cook. You can wait until there’s only meat and oil or you can leave a bit of sauce in.

I like to cook a big batch and leave a bit of sauce in. Then I let the beef cool down, put the mixture in a plastic container and store it in the freezer. Instant merienda for the whole week 😉

Cook: beef plus water and taco mix

3.) Dice onion & tomato and cut up lettuce.

4.) Mix the veggies with the cooked beef and put in taco shells. Or you can use nachos like we do at home. They still work well with the beef mixture promise!

We just heat up the nachos in the oven toaster and they become warm and crunchy! YUM!

Optional: You may add the following for greater yumminess!

  • sour cream
  • grated cheese
  • hot sauce
