Ground Beef Tacos:
Estimated Cost for Ground Beef: $5.00-enough for 20 tacos
Notes: I love to double this recipe and freeze the leftovers.
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 lb ground beef
2-4 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon chili powder
pinch of cayenne or crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce (If you like it spicy, use El Pato)
In a large skillet, heat the oil. Add the onions and cook for 5 minutes. Add the ground beef and cook, breaking up with a spoon. When the beef is almost cooked through, drain off the fat. Stir in the garlic, chili powder, cayenne, and salt and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the tomato sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for five minutes.
Serve inside lightly fried corn tortillas with homemade pico de gallo, cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, and sour cream. I like to make refried beans in the crockpot to go along side; they're so easy, it won' take you but a moment.
