I’ve always been the girl to use the prepared taco seasoning packets but tonight…oh, tonight…I went for it. I absolutely love Mexican food. And after moving to Texas, that love has increased. It’s so easy and so delicious to make and it also makes for wonderful leftovers.
- 2 lbs 90/10 ground meat
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 large red onion, finely chopped
- 1 can (15 oz) fire roasted tomatoes, diced
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon cumin
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon salt
In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Sauté onions until soft (approximately 5 minutes). Add tomatoes and heat until some of the liquid dissipates. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add ground meat and all other seasons. Cook thoroughly. Serve in flour tortillas topped with sour cream, lettuce and cheese.
