Do you need a recipe for tacos? Probably not. Brown a little ground beef with the pre-packaged taco seasoning and you're good to go. True.
But, it's just as easy to use fresh ingredients that give you a way better flavor and a lot less sodium. Perfect easy weeknight meal that your whole family will love.
Just kidding, that was cheesy. But I'm sure if you have a family they will love it.
How many recipes do I have on this blog that include a dash of worcestershire? A lot. It does magical things to food, particularly ground beef.
- 1 lb ground beef (recommend 93% lean)
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
- 1 8 oz can tomato sauce
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
- Dash worcestershire
Brown the meat, then add the onion and jalapeno and cook for about 5 minutes or so. Mix in the tomato sauce, then remaining ingredients. Turn the heat to low, cover and cook for several minutes to let the flavors marinate. I don't really know if that step is necessary, but it felt good. I like the idea of 'flavors marinating.'
Serve on hard or soft tortillas (I couldn't decide!), with chopped tomato, shredded lettuce, and sour cream. And salsa!
