Tacos Supreme

Tacos are a staple weeknight meal at our home, we have them at least 2 times a month.
I used to buy the Taco seasoning packets at the grocery, but then came across this recipe over on My Kitchen Cafe.
I will never buy the packets again. This recipe is just as easy, taste's so much better, and save's a little bit of money!
We also like to serve the Tacos with Cilantro Mexican Rice.

Tacos Supreme

Heat in a medium skillet over medium heat:
2 tablespoons Olive Oil

3/4 cup chopped onion

Cook, stirring often, until softened, 4 to 5 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high and add:

1 pound ground beef OR ground turkey

Cook, breaking up the meat, until it is no longer pink, about 3 minutes. Stir in:
1 to 3 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
Salt to taste ( about 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon)

Cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add:
1 15 oz. can tomato sauce
Optional: add a few dashes of hot pepper sauce to taste or canned jalapenos OR just leave out the heat altogether.

Cook, stirring occasionally, over low heat for 10 minutes or until there is no more liquid left in the meat mixture.

Serve meat in taco shells (hard or soft) and your choice of toppings.
