Quick & Easy Weeknight Tacos

Most people don't have the time to spend cooking an elaborate dinner every night, but it is often hard to eat healthy and fast.  These tacos are made with grass-fed lean ground beef, vegetables, and organic corn tortillas and are great served with my Guacamole (see recipe here).  These tacos are fast and easy! Hope you like them.  NOTE: If you haven't thawed any beef, you can cook it frozen - just drop the heat down a little bit and keep flipping and scraping off the done parts until it all the beef gets broken up.

Quick & Easy Weeknight Tacos
(serves 4)

1 Tbsp coconut oil or butter
1 lb. lean ground beef
2 Tbsp taco seasoning
3/4 c. water
1/4 c. spaghetti or tomato sauce
Organic corn tortillas 
Toppings: sour cream, shredded cheese, lettuce, tomato, salsa, and/or guacamole

1. Warm oil or butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Brown beef in skillet, stirring and breaking up into small chunks.

2. When the beef is browned, add taco seasoning, water, and spaghetti sauce and stir together.  Turn the mixture up to medium high heat until it begins boiling.  Once it is boiling, drop the mixture down to low and cover to simmer.  Simmer about 10 minutes.

3. While the mixture simmers, heat up the taco shells according to the package directions and chop up or get ready any toppings.

4.  Build your tacos with meat and any other toppings you like! I like meat, shredded cheese, shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, and a little bit of sour cream.  Enjoy!
