Okay so this really isn’t a recipe. This is actually just a huge cop out because I was too busy with wedding stuff. More specifically, worrying about tripping down the aisle in my 5 inch platform pumps and being a total hot mess. I’m not joking, this actually kept me up at night.
Luckily I didn’t fall down the aisle. I did, however, sweat profusely and almost went into the ugly cry when the bride and groom read their handwritten vows.
Also, I am fully aware I didn’t make my announcement last week as promised but once again, sweating, tripping, crying and 5 inch pumps were keeping me busy.
Oh and these photos? Courtesy of iphone. I was disorganized and hadn’t charged my camera battery.
So here it is people. A non recipe that uses the Homemade Taco Seasoning we made the other day.
Spicy Beef Tacos: Serves 6
1 lb Regular Ground Beef
3-4 tbsp of that Homemade Taco Seasoning
1 cup Cold Water
12 Small Flour Tortillas
Freshly diced tomato
Freshly Grated Cheddar Cheese
Diced Raw Onion (if that’s your thing)
Pico de Gallo
The list goes on and on…
Start by heating a skillet over medium high heat. Saute the ground beef until cooked through, making sure to use a wooden spoon to break up the beef into small pieces as you go, this should take about 6-8 minutes to cook through completely. Drain most of the oil from the beef, leaving about a tablespoon or so for flava.
Add the taco seasoning along with the water and stir to coat the beef completely with the sauce mixture, you can adjust how much of the seasoning mix you add, if you like it hotter you can always add a little more seasoning near the end. Set the heat to low and allow the liquid to come to a simmer. Allow the beef to simmer in the liquid for about 10-12 minutes until the liquid has evaporated and the beef is coated with the seasoning. Now is the time to taste. If you would prefer it a bit spicier just add some more seasoning and water and simmer again. Or ff your significant other happens to be taking his sweet time working on his car and forgetting about dinner you can always add a little more water and let it simmer again until you’re ready to eat.
There you go, a taco recipe you probably already know how to make.
