EASY GROUND BEEF TACO
In our home, these quick and simple ground beef tacos are an evening classic! Flavorful, tasty, and ready in less than 30 minutes, this dish is a winner.
All you have to do is sauté the onion, simmer the garlic until fragrant, then brown the meat. Then, in a pan, add everything else and simmer for approximately 10 minutes, or until the flavors have come together completely. Done!
To serve, simply set out some warm tortillas and a variety of toppings such as shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese, chopped lettuce, diced tomatoes (with or without avocado), sour cream (with or without guacamole), etc., and allow your family to build their own tacos with their favorite additives.
