Ground Beef Tacos Recipe
Classic, delicious, and a million times better than fast-food tacos, these homemade Ground Beef Tacos are filled with perfectly seasoned ground beef, fresh lettuce, cheese, and tomatoes all stuffed inside crunchy taco shells.
Servings: 4 servings
For the Ground Beef
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil and diced onion and sauté for 4-5 minutes, or until the onions are soft. Reduce heat to medium if needed, and stir often to prevent the onions from burning.
Add the ground beef to the skillet and use a large wooden spoon or spatula to break the beef into smaller and smaller bits and pieces. Fully cook your ground beef before draining approximately 3/4 of the liquid and fat from the skillet.
Return the skillet to medium-high heat. Add the seasoning and spices and tomato sauce to the beef and mix well to combine. Continue to cook for an additional 5 minutes, stirring often.
Gently spoon the prepared ground beef into individual crunchy taco shells and top with all your favorite toppings such as lettuce, tomato, cheese, and sour cream. Enjoy!
