Description

Pretty much the same as regular tacos, but with emphasis on the greens! Think of it as taco salad…in a taco shell!

Ingredients

  • 16 whole Taco Shells
  • 2 pounds Ground Beef
  • 3 Tablespoons Taco Seasoning
  • 1 can (4 Ounce) Tomato Paste
  • Salt To Taste
  • 1 can (14.5 Ounce) Beans (kidney, Pinto, Chili), Undrained
  • ½ cups Hot Water
  • 1 head Green Leaf Lettuce, Sliced Very Thin
  • 1 cup Grape Tomatoes, Halved (or Diced Regular Tomatoes)
  • 1 cup Grated Cheese (cheddar, Jack, Or Cheddar/jack)
  • FOR THE DRESSING:
  • ¼ cups Mayonnaise
  • ¼ cups Sour Cream
  • ¼ cups Salsa
  • 1 Tablespoon Ranch Dressing Mix (optional)
  • Extra Hot Sauce (optional)
  • Crushed Tortilla Chips (optional)

Preparation

Heat taco shells according to package directions. Set aside.

Brown ground beef until fully cooked. Drain excess fat, then add taco seasoning, tomato paste, beans, and hot water. Stir to combine, then add salt as needed. Keep warm.

To make the dressing, mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream, salsa, ranch mix, and hot sauce. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding salt and pepper if it needs it.

To build the tacos, first fill the shell with plenty of lettuce. Spoon on the meat mixture, then add tomatoes and cheese. Top with a light drizzle of dressing and serve immediately!

Optional: Add a little dressing on top of the lettuce before adding the meat.

Made these for dinner tonight and they were great.
I especially loved the dressing. I did not add the ranch to the dressing… also… I added sliced avocado’s to the top if each taco. This recipe is a keeper!
