When someone mentions tacos, this is exactly the recipe that comes to mind. It’s what I was raised on and is a classic for many families. I’m not certain they are authentic in the least but they are tasty.

Taco night when I was growing up included canned refried beans and boxed Mexican rice. Mama made the taco shells from corn tortillas but that is another post.

One of my favorite things about easy ground beef tacos is they are easy to customize. I like crunchy corn taco shells and my sister and the auntlings life flour tortilla soft tacos so I just add a few flour tortillas to the mix to make everyone happy with very little effort.

I have a secret ingredient that I add to our taco meat. Diced pickled jalapeno adds just a little extra something to the finished dish without being overpowering. I normally grab the mild to make sure it isn’t too spicy for the kids. The 10, 8, and 3-year-olds ate these last week with no problems.
