Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 lb 90% to 93% lean ground beef
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 12 taco shells - either hard shells or small 6-inch soft flour tortillas will work
  • Taco Toppings: shredded cheese shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, diced red onion, taco sauce, sour cream, salsa, and guacamole


Add the beef to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Break the meat apart with a wooden spoon. Add the chili powder, cumin, salt, garlic powder, and pepper to the meat. Stir well. Cook until the meat is cooked through, about 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Reduce the heat to medium. Add water and stir to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 7-8 minutes, until some of the liquid evaporates but the meat mixture is still a little saucy. Remove from the heat.

Warm the taco shells according to their package directions.

Fill the taco shells with 2 heaping tablespoons of taco meat. Top with desired taco toppings: shredded cheese, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, diced red onion, taco sauce, sour cream, and guacamole, etc.

Our kids love tacos!!! Doesn't matter if it’s Taco Tuesday or the third Saturday of the month! This is a quick and easy dinner that our family enjoys. They especially like to load up on all their favorite toppings. This is a great way to feed your family because you can use, chicken, beef, fish, and of course any kind of wild game. Our family favorite is moose tacos! There are so many versions of this classic family favorite you could eat tacos every night of the week!
