Hearty Tacos

I got this recipe from Jeremy's sister.

  • 1 lb extra lean ground beef
  • 1 TBSP minced onions (or fresh)
  • 1/2 package Lipton Onion Soup mix
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 package taco seasoning: I make my own with 1 TBSP each: Seasoning salt, garlic powder, chili powder.
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2 TBSP chopped pickled jalapenos
  • 8 (or more) crispy taco shells
  • Optional toppings: shredded Cheddar cheese, chopped tomato, diced avocado, shredded lettuce, etc.
  1. Heat taco shells according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, cook beef & minced onion in hot skillet sprayed with cooking spray over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until turkey is browned, stirring until it crumbles. Drain and return to pan.
  3. Add soup mix, taco seasoning mix, and water. Cover & cook 5 minutes; uncover & simmer 2 minutes. Stir in salsa, and cook until thoroughly heated.
  4. Fill each taco shell with 1/2 cup beef mixture & top with desired toppings. Serve immediately.
Makes 8 (or more) tacos. I crammed a lot of meat into my shells and it was overflowing...I probably should have divided the same amount of meat into 3 shells.
