Taco is a traditional Mexican dish which has taken the world by storm. It's an easy and practical choice for some family fun at dinner time.

  • Prep: 5 minutes
  • Cook: 25 minutes
  • Total time: 30 minutes
  • Recipe serves: 4-6

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1 to 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and minced fine (alternately, you can add hot pepper sauce to taste or canned jalapenos OR just leave out the heat altogether, although I think the meat really needs a little kick and adding the jalapeno without seeds didn't make the dish overly spicy)
  • Taco Shells

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, add the oil and chopped onion. Cook, stirring often, until the onion is softened, about 4-5 minutes.
  2. Add the ground beef and cook, breaking up the meat into smaller chunks, until it is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  3. Off the heat, drain the grease from the meat.
  4. Return the pan to the heat and stir in the garlic, chili powder, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper.
  5. Cook for about 30 seconds and then add the tomato sauce and jalapeno.
  6. Turn the heat to low and simmer the meat mixture for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Serve in taco shells with your choice of toppings.
