Yummy Taco Meat

This is a quick and easy one that we enjoy, in various fashions, around our house fairly frequently. I love tacos, enchiladas, burritos, and my boy's really like nachos!

I use pre-made seasoning and always add in some green pepper and onion to bulk out the meat, and oftentimes add in a can of mushrooms too.

A few simple ingredients ready to go.

Dicing up the vegetables.

Adding the ground beef to the peppers in a large non-stick skillet.

 Browning the meat and softening the pepper and onion.

Adding water, seasoning, and mushrooms once the mixture is well cooked.
Everything mixed up, and ready for tacos!

My perfect taco, melted cheddar cheese and a warm tortilla, meat mixture, lettuce, tomato, and sour cream. Yumm!

1 lb ground beef
1 large onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 can mushrooms, drained (optional)
1/4 cup taco seasoning
1/3 cup water
Desired toppings: cheese, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, queso, etc.


  1. Brown ground beef in a large non-stick skillet with the onion and green pepper. Cook 10-15 minutes, or until beef is cooked through and vegetables reach desired tenderness. Drain grease if necessary.
  2. Add in taco seasoning, water, and mushrooms. Stir well to evenly distribute seasonings; allow to simmer a few minutes.
  3. Prepare tortillas - spread a little cheddar cheese on one and microwave for 20-30 seconds until tortilla is warm and cheese begins to melt. Add desired amount of meat and additional toppings. Roll and enjoy!
