2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 Medium yellow or red onion, chopped
1 Pound SAMPCO Extra Lean Shredded Beef
1 Pkg. taco seasoning packet
¾ Cup water
12 Small flour tortillas (or hard corn taco shells)
Fresh cilantro leaves
Diced jalapeño peppers
Sliced avocado or guacamole
1. Measure 3 tablespoons of chopped onion and set aside (to use for toppings.)
2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add remaining chopped onion and cook, while stirring occasionally, until softened– about 4 minutes.
3. Stir in shredded beef; add taco seasoning & water. Simmer, uncovered, until most of liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes. (Mixture should be moist– but not wet.)
4. Spoon about ½ cup of seasoned beef mixture onto each tortilla or taco shell. Top with any or all of your favorite taco topping ingredients.
**Cook’s tip: Try assembling your taco by adding your juiciest ingredients last (such as beef mixture, tomatoes, salsa…) it will help prevent the tortilla or taco shell from getting soggy!
