Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 15 minutes

Everyone loves tacos – since you get to build them yourself and put in just what you desire. If you have leftovers, use them in Deluxe Taco Soup (see tip, below).

What you'll need

  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 14.5oz. can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 16 hard taco shells
  • Iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • Mexican cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Guacamole
Helpful Tip:

If you have 3/4 cup of the beef mixture leftover, then use it to make Deluxe Taco Soup. The flavors work perfectly with the Soup and using the leftovers makes the Soup quicker and easier to make.


Make it Faster: 1/2 package (about 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon) taco seasoning can be used instead of the seasoning mix.

How kids can help: They can make the seasoning mix.
