It’s been a long time since we’ve done the Taco Tuesday theme. I mean, heck, for a few years there, Taco Tuesday and Margaritas were an expectation on Tuesday …
That esophageal cancer certainly did change a lot of things in our life.
So the other night, I was digging around in that chest freezer and found a lonely package of ground beef.
I’ll be honest, I’m not a huge fan of Aldi’s Grass Fed Beef even though it was only $3.99 … it’s got a chewy texture and that just wigs us out a little bit so I was glad to use it for tacos instead of burgers!
I was also thankful that Publix had these taco kits on sale B1G1F when I ran in for something else. I normally do NOT buy the kits but this time I did!
I had a bag of frozen corn in the freezer so that’s what I used as well …
1 pound ground beef
1 onion chopped
12 taco shells (corn, you know the crunchy ones!)
taco seasoning packet
1/2 cup water
can of corn, drained
hot sauce of choice
Ready to get your Taco Tuesday on? Let’s do this!
Cook your onion and ground beef in a large skillet til no longer pink. Drain the excess fat off. Might as well go make yourself a margarita while this is going on! I’ll take mine on the rocks with salt please!
Add your corn (drained!) and sprinkle the taco seasoning over all the meat/onion/corn mixture. Pour in your 1/2 cup of water and stir. Let simmer on low heat until the moisture has pretty much cooked out.
Grab a large baking dish and turn the oven on to 350 degrees.
Stand up your shells, the best you can, and fill the base with cheese. As much or as little as you’d like because it’s cheese!
Then top with the meat mixture, making sure to drain as much liquid as possible so the shells don’t get soft …
Top with MORE cheese, because … it’s cheese!
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and you are really ready to start the Taco Tuesday festivities … did I forget to tell you to make yourself a margarita while the meat was cooking??
Top with shredded lettuce and avocado and serve up! Yummy! And 2nd margarita is totally optional!
