Last night we tried a new twist on tacos. I just love tacos and could eat them once a week with no complaints. Adam, on the other hand, while he will eat them, doesn't like them so often. So I found a recipe that mixed things up a bit and we really liked it!
Introducing Chili Tacos!..
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb ground beef
1 envelope taco seasoning
a dash of chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
1 (15 oz) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
store bought taco shells, heated to package directions
shredded cheddar cheese
any other taco toppings you enjoy
In a large skillet over medium high heat, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and cook til soft, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for about 3 more minutes. Add the beef and cook until done. Add the taco seasoning, cumin, chili powder, tomato sauce, and kidney beans. Reduce heat to medium low and let simmer for 5 minutes.
Now build your tacos with the chili meat mix and toppings of your choice!
I really like that this is more filling with the beans and you can add the tomato element without a fresh tomato because while I like just a little tomato with my tacos, I can't eat the entire tomato.
