These easy ground beef tacos are a family favorite! And a neighborhood favorite, too! Several years ago I toyed with the idea of creating a restaurant concept that provided heat-and-serve family-friendly food to go. To test the idea, I wrote up a menu and let my neighbors place orders.
These ground beef tacos (along with the chicken version) were by far the most popular item! Moms reported back that their kids and husbands gobbled up the tacos. Some said they needed a double order next time because the tacos were gone so fast, and others said they loved having the tacos in the fridge during the week so kids could heat them up for a snack after school.
Since the restaurant idea didn’t pan out (yet!), I’m sharing the recipe here. And I hope you get to try it! The frying technique for corn tortillas takes a little practice, so check out my YouTube video to see a full demonstration. For a full spread, these tacos are delightful with cilantro-lime sauce, white rice, blended black beans, guacamole, and chips and queso.
