Courses: Main Course
Serves: 12 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 lb 454g / 16ozLean ground beef
1/4 cup 15g / 0.5ozAll-purpose flour
1 tablespoon 15mlChili powder
1 teaspoon 5mlSalt
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlDried minced onion
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlPaprika
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlOnion powder
1   Garlic powder
1/2 cup 118mlWater
12   Taco shells
2 cups 474mlShredded lettuce
1 cup 146g / 5.1ozShredded cheddar cheese

Recipe Instructions

In a medium bowl, combine the ground beef with the flour, chili powder, salt, minced onion, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder. Use your hands to thoroughly mix the ingredients into the ground beef.

Add the seasoned beef mixture to the water in a skillet over medium heat. Mix well with a wooden spoon or spatula, and break up the meat as it cooks. Heat for 5 to 6 minutes, or until browned. The finished product should be very smooth, somewhat pasty, with no large chunks of beef remaining.

Heat up the taco shells in a 375 degree oven for about 5 minutes.

Build each taco by spooning 2 to 3 tablespoons of the meat into a warm shell. Spread some of the shredded lettuce over the meat and then sprinkle some cheese over the top. Repeat with the remaining ingredients and serve immediately.

This recipe yields 12 tacos.
