Ground Beef Tacos

Let’s cook some tacos. Mexican? Tex-Mex? Good, anyway. This is what I call comfort food. And you can use your imagination to make your tacos. You can fill them with the ingredients you like. I will show you the tacos I made today. Tomorrow they may be different.


Some vegetable oil
½ chopped onion
½ cup chopped green pepper
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
½ lb ground beef
½ cup cubed squash
½ cup frozen corn
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
1 chopped arbol chili
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Some fresh cilantro
4 tablespoons mole
½ chopped tomato
Some lettuce
Some salt to taste
Some taco shells
Some sour cream
Some shredded cheese
Some guacamole

We will start preparing all the ingredients. First we will cut the vegetables. Then we will heat some oil in a pan. Not too much oil. We will sauté the onion and the green pepper. Do not use all the onion now because we will need some later. We will add the garlic in a couple of minutes. And then we will add the ground beef. We can add the frozen corn now too. We will stir the ground beef and let it cook for some minutes. When the ground beef gets a brown color, we will add the spices. Add the cumin, the oregano, the arbol chili, the black pepper and some salt to taste. Stir again. Then we will add the cilantro and let it cook for one more minute.
We have to prepare the mole too. To do this we will use another pan. We will heat the mole in the pan for three minutes. That will be enough.
Now we will prepare a little salad for our tacos. We will mix the tomato, the lettuce and the rest of the onion.
We only have to serve our tacos. We will fill them with some of the ground mixture, some mole, some salad, some sour cream, some shredded cheese and some guacamole.
And now enjoy your tacos!
