This is our favorite way to eat ground beef or turkey tacos. It’s such a simple recipe but with a few “new touches” it really takes your standard taco from ordinary to extraordinary.

adapted from this recipe
1 3/4 Pounds Ground Beef or Turkey
3 Tablespoons Taco Seasoning
3 Tablespoons Tomato Paste
1 15 Ounce Can Pinto Beans, drained
2/3 Cup Hot Water
1/2 Cup Sour Cream
1/2 Cup Salsa
Chopped Leafy Green Lettuce
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
3 Tablespoons Peanut or Sunflower Oil
12 Soft Corn Tortillas
Preheat oven to 400 and brush both sides of the tortillas lightly with peanut oil. Place on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 8 minutes or until golden brown and crispy, flipping halfway through cooking. While tortillas are cooking stir together sour cream and salsa. Set tortillas and salsa mixture aside.
Brown ground beef or turkey in a large skillet and drain fat. Add taco seasoning, tomato paste, beans and water and simmer over medium heat for five minutes, stirring occasionally.
To build tacos, top tortillas with lettuce, ground beef/turkey mixture, cheese, tomatoes and salsa mixture.
