Unless you grew up around Mexican food, chances are your first introduction to it was probably the ground beef taco. And maybe you make them for your family – they’re fast, easy & everyone seems to love them from kids to kids at heart. I make a few different kinds of ground beef tacos, but these are our fave.
My son, in particular, loves tacos. Hard, soft, he doesn’t care, but he has a particular affinity for tacos made from ground beef, and a love of deep rich flavors and a just little heat. (More heat as he’s gotten older! Can that kid go through the Sriracha now that he’s in his 20’s!) So we started making our Taco Seasoning Homemade, and don’t worry, this one is family friendly.
What can I say about this casserole? All the appeal of tacos combined with a nacho like topping, hearty, with vegetables and added fiber from the beans? I tried it, thinking my teenager would like it. I was wrong, he loved it. A little salsa, a few slices of avocado and a dab of sour cream add a freshness to this substantial meal.
