Ashley & Val’s Local Groud Beef Tacos



1 Package of Two Rivers Ground Beef

1 Package of Taco Seasoning

Lita’s Flour Tortillas

Toppings: Avocado, Cilantro, tomatoes, sour cream


Val’s Tip 

“Always let your raw meat sit out at room temperature for 30 minutes uncovered before cooking.  This will help it dry just a bit.  If there is too much moisture you will end up steaming the meat more than browning it.”

First, cook your ground beef until it’s browned, and drain.  Lower heat, add taco seasoning mix (I like to add a little tomato paste) and simmer. 

Val’s Tip 

“Cast iron is the best type of pan for browning ground meat and make it a larger one rather than a smaller pan.  Don’t overcrowd the pan.  Break it up into larger pieces and then let it cook to develop the caramelization of the meat. It needs to have long contact time with the pan to brown properly so resist the urge to stir as you break up the meat.”

Next, cook Lita’s Flour Tortillas in an ungreased hot pan, 30-45 seconds on each side. Wrap tortillas in a cloth to keep warm until serving.

Prep toppings such as avocado, cilantro, onion, tomatoes or sour cream! 

Produce always tastes better when local and in season. 

Ashley’s Tip
