Some things never go out of style and these Classic All American Beef Tacos are on that list! Seasoned taco meat, lettuce, sour cream, salsa, and cheese, all in a crunchy tortilla shell… it’s the perfect quick Taco Tuesday dinner in 20 minutes or less. Plus, leftovers make awesome meal-prep lunches! Check out the video to see how.
As you saw, this recipe is a no-brainer and always a good idea! Even though we’ve all probably enjoyed these tacos at least once ( if you haven’t, my apologies) I HAD TO include it in the Taco Tuesday Cookbook. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be THE complete guide to tacos.
Plus, this recipe saves meal time catastrophes when dinner rolls around and have hungry people to feed, company shows up unexpected, or you get home late from soccer practice and realize you forgot to set the slow cooker on that morning, hey it happens!
Since I always have frozen ground beef for such emergencies, all I have to do is thaw it out and boom, problems solves.
Trust me, it doesn’t get any more simple than browning the meat, warming the taco shells, setting out shredded lettuce, salsa, cheese, sour cream, and guacamole. BOOM! Dinner is ready.
These self-serve tacos take less than 20 minutes from start to finish and my family enjoys them because everyone gets to assemble their own food which also makes this a great idea to serve at parties and gatherings!
Whether you make tacos or Homemade Guacamole and salsa, any of the recipes in my Taco Tuesday Cookbook can double as a quick weeknight dinner or an impressive bite while entertaining family and friends without spending all your time in the kitchen.
For these tacos, I tend to keep all the ingredients on hand because items like ground beef, shredded cheese, lettuce, can be used in several recipes. Salsa and sour cream? Consider those kitchen staples from now on.
Leftovers are totally welcome because I use those other meals later in the week like burrito bowls, quesadillas, or salads for the office. It’s taco goodness all week long!
