Totally Tacos

The day after Halloween, the day after Valentine's Day, the day after Easter, all very important chocolate coma holidays that I absolutely love! These days role around and all control is thrown out the window and chocolate is consumed by the handful. I don't even mind. I love chocolate and I love not feeling guilty. Halloween you forever are my favorite, but Easter, you do well my friend! I consumed lots of yummy chocolate yesterday. But even this chocoholic has her limits. You need something to eat to counteract all that chocolate. Tacos are a great way to do that! I use my husband's recipe and it is pretty much bomb. dot. com.



Ingredients:

Lots of Lauren's Guacamole (optional--but really not)
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tsp salt
2 cloves of chopped garlic
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cumin
2-3 cups of water
2-4 tbsp red chile powder
Taco Shells
Cheese
Shredded lettuce
Sour Cream (optional)

Directions:

Brown ground beef with chopped onion (if higher fat content - brown meat and drain oil, if lean don't bother). 

Add 2 to 3 cups of water, chopped garlic, salt, black pepper, cumin, and red chile powder to taste - I use 2 to 4 tbsp just depending. 

Cook on medium heat until water is almost all evaporated - your choice depending on how juicy you like the taco meat. 

Put the taco shells in the microwave for 1 minute or follow the recipe on box for the oven. Add meat to shells top with guacamole, cheese, and lettuce.

You can also enjoy your taco as a salad. It is not so pretty but it is very yummy!



What are some of your favorite meals to have after a chocolate binge?
