Taco shells, taco seasoning, flour tortillas, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream were at home. That is most of what I needed for the meal. I bought a head of fresh lettuce and extra lean ground beef for $3.98. You can do so much with these ingredients.
1 pkg extra lean ground beef
1 taco seasoning mix
1 cup water
Brown ground beef on medium high heat. Once browned stir in taco seasoning mix and water. Reduce to low and simmer.
roma tomatoes, chopped
Bake taco shells in 250 degree oven til warm. Fill with ground beef mixture, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese. Option: soft tacos with flour tortillas and same toppings. Enjoy!
Some of my taco shells had been sitting in the cupboard too long that they broke in half. But that is when I decided to make a taco salad with the same ingredients. Yummy!
Add lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, crushed taco shells, and ground beef in a bowl. I also added a dollop of sour cream on the side.
This was sooo good I had to have seconds.
