Easy Beef Soft Tacos

ย Soft tacos are my favorite kind of tacos! My kids like the crunchy ones, but I think they are one of the most awkward foods ever invented! Puh-lease, give me soft tacos, okay? Thank-you forever.

My family loves Mexican food. Well, OK, I doubt that taco seasoning and Tabasco’s rates as true Mexican, but hey. When you live many, many miles from Old Mexico – you do what you can. And I am not against ‘American-Mexican’. Or Tex-Mex, or whatever you want to call it. As long as it tastes good, and has some kick – we’re all gonna love it! :)

Here is my favorite soft taco recipe. Please make twice as many as you think you will need. Your kids will suddenly have an appetite! My nibbler of a 5-year-old can eat 3 or 4 of these babies!

(plus cake!

But we aren’t talking about cake today.

Although that would be awesome.

Because I love cake more than tacos.)

Brown your beef burger. Or antelope, deer, elk, bear – whatever. You can even use ground turkey, if you’re into that sort of thing. I’m not. Why ruin a good taco? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Add one can of diced tomatoes. Any kind, my friend! Diced, stewed, with chiles, without chiles. Just whatever you have in the cupboard.Beef tacos

Add 1 package taco seasoning and one can of drained beans. I like black beans, but again – any kind will work. Stir it all together and heat through.

Spoon into a tortilla, top with shredded cheddar. Deliciousness! And so simple. If you are going to be out – just make this and stick it in the crockpot to keep warm till suppertime.

    Yup, I’ve made this time and time again. Same recipe, except I make my own taco seasoning, icky stuff in the packets.
