I know that this is way off subject, but as this year begins to wind down, I want to share with you some of my most favorite recipes that I have cooked this year. There will be some links to my most-liked recipes towards the bottom of every post that I will be writing within the next couple of weeks, just like with yesterday's article Chicken and wild rice soup. I will do my best to make sure that each post will stay within the same food category as the others. But I can't make any promises because I might get a little side tracked. 

Now on to the original subject.

I had quite a bit of the meat mixture leftover from last night's dinner Beef Enchiladas, and so I chose to use the remaining to make tacos for lunch for my big little brother and me. But I mainly made it for him because he's real sweet and funny! 

You too can easily make these delicious tacos with having the option of preparing them with a real kick or mild. Whichever way you decide, I promise you they will taste great! :) 


Homemade Tacos 

Ingredients 

1 lb ground beef
2 Tbsp Olive oil
1 yellow onion diced
2 cloves garlic minced
1 oz can diced mild green chiles if desired 
1 oz packet taco mix (Follow the instructions according to the package) 
Flour Tortillas or Taco Shells 

Favorite Toppings 
Shredded Cheddar Cheese 
Sour cream 
Shredded lettuce 

 

Directions 

1. Pour a few drops of the oil into a large skillet and heat over medium-  high heat and wait about a minute for the oil to get hot. Next, combine the ground beef and crumble (If you have one, use a potato masher to make it easier). Once ground beef is about halfway cooked, combine the onion, garlic, and green chiles (If you desire) and saute for three-six minutes, stirring occasionally. 

2. Drain the beef mixture. Pour meat back into the skillet and combine the taco mix (Follow the instructions according to the package on the back.) 
 
3. After you have completed step two, spoon Taco mixture into hard taco shells. Serve with your favorite toppings, if desired. Enjoy!
