Taco Night Tacos

The way to do tacos right, including all the fixings and plenty of flavor and a touch of spice.


1 lb ground sirloin
1 packet taco seasoning
1 head iceberg lettuce
1 large ripe tomato
1 large white onion
1 avocado, sliced, or packaged or homemade guacamole
1 container reduced fat sour cream
Sliced jalapeño peppers (optional)
8 oz shredded cheese
Taco sauce (jarred, or packets of the sauce come with pre-packaged taco dinners) or Easy Homemade Salsa (recipe below)
12 soft flour tortillas or 12 crunchy taco shells

Easy Homemade Salsa
1 can tomatoes with green chilies (such as RO*TEL®)
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 T dried cilantro
1 tsp garlic powder



Brown ground beef with taco seasoning according to packet directions until internal temperature reaches 160° F on a meat thermometer.

While the beef is browning, shred lettuce with a cheese grater, and dice tomato and onion.

Put sliced avocado or guacamole, sour cream, jalapeño peppers, cheese and any other vegetables in separate bowls.

If you are making your own salsa, pour all the ingredients in the blender and zap it on ‘high” for about 15 seconds.

Spoon beef mixture onto tortillas or into taco shells, and add rest of ingredients as desired.
