Ground Beef Tacos

Pretty quick & delicious … I am sure this recipe is adaptable to personal taste pretty easily

The recipe is from BonAppetit.com…. here is the link to the original recipe… I changed it a bit but not too much.

Some diced onions are sautéed…some spices are added, then ground beef…cooked until done… some tomatoes, black beans & corn…. almost a chilli but not quite!

My local Italian store has some really nice tortillas..this time I used small corn & wheat ones.

Top these tacos with some avocado & we used hot sauce & salsa!

Easily adapted to your taste..if you don’t want to add black beans..use kidney beans instead. out just leave the beans out..oh…& the corn used is frozen niblets… I like to have them in the freezer so I didn’t even have to go get any…

Here is the recipe

Ingredients

1 – 2 tbsp oil

1 medium-sized onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

red pepper flakes… I just put a shake of the jar in…use a s much as you like depending on how ‘hot’ you like your food! you can always spice this up by adding hot sauce when serving

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp paprika

1 pound of ground beef

1 can of black beans…15 oz can , rinsed

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
