Tacos for the Win!

Everyone loves tacos, right?  At least most of the people I know like tacos.  We have tacos at least once a week in our household, they're quick, easy, delicious, and can be fairly healthy, depending on how you make them.  Here's a recipe I like to use in our household on Taco Tuesdays!  I hope you enjoy it. 

(this serves approximately 4 people and takes around 30 minutes from start to finish)⁠

What you need:

  • 8 or 16 (if you like to double) corn tortillas ⁠
  • 2 teaspoons of olive oil (we like to use olive oil from our friends @burroughs.family.farms)⁠
  • 1/2 onion, diced⁠
  • 1 lb Mariposa Ranch 100% grass-fed & grass-finished ground beef⁠
  • 1 8 oz can tomato sauce⁠
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder⁠
  • 1 tablespoon cumin powder⁠
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder⁠
  • 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper (or to your taste)⁠
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano⁠
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper⁠
  • Sea salt, to taste ⁠

How to cook:⁠

  1. I prefer to use our large cast-iron skillet. Heat it over medium heat, add the olive oil, then the diced onion. ⁠
  2. Cook onions for 5-7 minutes until they start to look translucent. ⁠
  3. Add the ground beef and break it up into smaller pieces as it cooks for a few minutes.
  4. Mix in the tomato sauce and spices. ⁠
  5.  Let the mixture cook on medium or medium-low for 8-10 minutes. ⁠
  6. When the meat has cooked through, set it aside and cover it with a lid to keep the mixture warm. ⁠
  7. Prepare the sides and toppings you want with your meat⁠
  8. Assemble your tacos, eat, enjoy, and repeat as many times as needed! ⁠
