Soft or hard shell tacos with toppings
Prep time: 15 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
Meat mixture ingredients:
- 1 lb or 450 g ground beef, extra lean
- 2 tsp chili powder
- 2 tsp onion flakes
- 1 tsp cumin powder
- 1/4 tsp turmeric
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 head leaf lettuce
- 4 green onions
- 1/2 cup cilantro (optional)
- 4 Roma tomatoes
- 6 10″ soft flour, multigrain or corn tortillas, or hard shell tacos
- 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, light, shredded
- 1/2 cup sour cream, fat-free or light
- 1/2 cup chunky salsa
Brown ground beef in large non-stick electric or stove-top fry pan at medium high until no longer pink. Add spice, ketchup and water to browned meat. Simmer meat mixture at medium-low. Meat mixture will thicken within 10 minutes.
Rinse lettuce in a salad spinner and spin dry. Chop green onion and cilantro and slice tomatoes. Set out toppings in small serving bowls on dinner table.
Spoon thickened meat mixture into tortilla and sprinkle with cheese. Add your favorite toppings. Roll up your tortilla, folding the bottom up to prevent leaking.
