Homemade Tacos Recipe

We love Mexican cuisine! And these fresh and spicy tacos make a perfect low-effort dinner you can opt for instead of conventional fast food. Try them once and we guarantee that they will become one of the staple recipes in your family!

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 lb (450 g) lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup (75 g) chopped onions
  • 14 oz (400 g) petite canned tomatoes
  • 8 taco shells
  • lettuce, tomatoes, onion, and cheese for the toppings
  • taco seasoning

For the homemade taco seasoning, you will need

  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp dried oregano

Instructions

  1. Take a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil in it over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the ground beef to the skillet and break up any lumps with a spatula.
  3. Add in the chopped onions.
  4. Cook for about 6 minutes, occasionally stirring. When the meat is cooked through, and the onions are soft, remove the skillet from the heat. Drain off the excess fat. Use 90 % lean beef so that there is less fat in the end.
  5. Add the taco seasoning to the skillet. Stir it to coat the meat.
  6. Drain and dice the tomatoes. Add them to the skillet. Simmer everything for about 3 minutes.
  7. Fill the taco shells or soft flour tortillas with ground beef. Add lettuce and fresh tomatoes, top everything off with shredded cheese. Serve to the table.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
