More About This Recipe
  • This taco recipe is the classic Tex-Mex-style version of tacos that many Americans grow up with: seasoned ground beef stuffed in a crispy taco shell with additional fillings like lettuce, cheese, tomatoes and sour cream. Your family probably made this at home when you were growing up, or you may know this recipe from the occasional stop at Taco Bell, the fast food chain that is often credited with making ground beef tacos famous in the United States. Go south of the border though, and you’ll find fillings that go beyond ground beef. There’s tacos al pastor which are made with seasoned pork steak strips, shrimp tacos, tacos filled with carne asada (seasoned flank steak) and more. So, once you’ve had your fill of ground beef tacos, try your hand at any one of those delicious takes on tacos, too. All taco’d out? Learn how to make enchiladas next with our easy how-to article.
