RECIPE: Taco Night!

Tacos are a win-win-win at my house.  The kids love them, they are healthy, and it’s a great way to repackage leftovers.  Plus, everyone can have it exactly the way they like it.  We typically also make Steve’s slaw, and I love my “taco” over greens instead of a tortilla.  


  • 1 lb ground Ramstead beef (we typically substitute any fridge leftover, anything works) 
  • If browning meat:
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • ½ onion, chopped 
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 Tbsp taco seasoning
  • Taco fixin’s:  Pick one or more from each category
  • Base layers: tortillas, greens, rice, beans
  • The heart of the matter: cooked meat, Steve’s slaw
  • Toppings: shredded or goat cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, cilantro, green onions, mangos, olives, lettuce and tomatoes, lime wedges to squeeze over top


  1. Thaw ground meat, then brown in oil over medium-high heat
  2. Once meat releases some juice, add onion, garlic, and taco seasoning
  3. We serve buffet style with serve yourself meat and topping choices
  4. Even the kids usually go back for second helpings
  5. Enjoy!  Kick back with a great meal knowing everyone is happy.

This meal is comfort food in a bowl! You can make it fancy with homemade noodles, or keep it easy and use whatever you have on hand. For maximum flavor, add drippings from pot roast or short ribs to your sauce!
