Easy Ground Beef (or Turkey) Tacos

You’ll need:
1lb ground beef or ground turkey
1/2 white onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 tablespoon cumin
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon coriander
8oz can tomato sauce
El Milagro corn tortillas

In a skillet over medium heat, add the ground beef or ground turkey and the onion. Cook for about 5 minutes or until cooked through, continuously stirring and breaking up the meat. Stir in the spices + minced garlic and allow to cook for about 30 seconds, then reduce the heat to medium-low and add the tomato sauce. Allow to simmer for another 10 minutes or until the sauce has cooked down nicely.

For heating corn tortillas (and yes, you should always heat your corn tortillas!), we advise heating a skillet pan over medium heat and tossing your tortillas in there one at a time (or two at a time if it’s a big enough pan to still heat them individually!). You’ll flip the tortilla after 20-30 seconds, making sure that the tortilla is lightly browned.

Once the tortillas are ready, you can start building your tacos. We love the tried and true toppings like shredded lettuce, tomato, sour cream, avocado, and cheese.

This taco meat is also excellent on sweet potato fries, a salad, in an enchilada, as part of a delicious Tex-Mex inspired dip… Be creative - and don’t forget to let us in on what you used it for!
