So I originally had two posts to go up ahead of this one, but it was my first time using Windows Live Writer (which is amazing btw) and i forgot to hit publish. SO tacos will be today’s post! They are super easy to make, and inexpensive as well. I wouldn’t say they are the healthiest option, but if you used ground turkey instead of beef, and made a taco salad instead of using the taco shells, it can be healthy!
I prefer the Ortega Taco Kit. The taco shells are never stale and the sauce mix, and the taco sauce itself I LOVE! I even have a full size bottle of it in my fridge, so the packet isn’t even a necessity. But any who, brown about a pound of ground beef (I use 85-15 mix for more flavor) in a pan, strain liquid, add taco seasoning and 3/4 cup of water, and cook until thickened. And that’s it!! Super easy and quick for a late night dinner that tastes delicious, and also a dinner that doesn’t break the bank. One pound of ground beef is usually around $3, the kit was $2.99 plus any toppings you’d like. I used up shredded cheddar, iceburg lettuce that i bought for a salad that never happened, Campari tomatoes (my absolute favorite!!) and of course the Ortega taco sauce. I always used onions as well, but onions really haven’t been my thing since becoming pregnant. Here’s some pics on how the meal should look!
