The ground beef filling below can be used in Tacos, Burritos, Enchiladas, Taco salads, etc. You may adjust the heat by adding your favorite hot sauce later. Of course you can adjust the amount of each spice according to your taste - nothing in cooking is set in stone!
1 lb ground beef
1 medium onion chopped
3 or so ounces olive oil
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 4.5 oz can Old El Paso chopped green chilies
1 medium to large tomato diced or in chunks
1-2 large pinches each powdered garlic, oregano and sweet basil
1 package Old El Paso taco seasoning
4 or so good big shakes Worcestershire sauce
Fry the onion in the olive oil until tender. Add the ground beef and cook using medium heat until the beef is no longer pink; stirring frequently to break up any clumps. Add the can of tomato sauce and stir. Then add the green chilies, tomato, spices and the Worcestershire sauce and finally the taco seasoning; stir together. If too thick add a little water. Cover and simmer for an additional five minutes.
For tacos get corn shells , heat in the oven , add the seasoned meat, cover with your favorite cheese, then shredded lettuce, more diced tomato?. Depending on taste, add a dab of salsa on top, but some may like sour cream or guacamole! Hey, put all three on and forget the calories.
Also, don’t forget a side of Old El Paso refried beans !
