I have come up with a recipe that will help you make a quick and easy dinner. The recipe is for ground beef tacos.

Ground Beef Tacos

While opting for ground beef, I prefer to have a beef with 80-90% of lean meat. The meat with high fat will give more flavor to the tacos. These tacos make a perfect family dinner for the weekend.

Ground beef tacos have a simple recipe. Combine onion, starch, chili powder, cornstarch, cumin, garlic, oregano, and water with the ground beef in a pan. Cook this mixture and fill it in the tacos. In three steps, your beef tacos will be ready to enjoy.

You can use Cotija cheese or any of its substitutes in the recipe if you want. The recipe has little details involved that are not mentioned above. There are other main course recipes on our blog as well that you should also check.

1. Pecan Cornbread Dressing To make this recipe, I will recommend you to use stale cornbread, not a fresh one. This will give a crispy texture to the cornbread dressing mix.

2. Tacos De PescadoI will share the Tacos De Pescado Recipe with my fish taco lovers, so you can make it at home with deep-fried fish by using some mayonnaise.

3. Camarones al AjilloThis recipe of Camarones al Ajillo reminds me of my hometown. It is a complete dinner recipe that you can make for any occasion. I am always up for any variety of shrimp recipes!

4. Pork Lo MeinLo mein is a noodle dish that often is confused with chow mein, and many Chinese restaurants further the confusion by using the two names interchangeably.
