Ready in 30 minutes

My original plan for dinner was to make a simple batch of ground beef tacos, served authentic Mexican style. As I was browning the beef I was trying to think of some ways to jazz them up a bit. This is what I came up with.


1 lb ground beef
1 small Onion; minced
2 cloves Garlic; minced
2 tablespoon Mexican chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
1/2 t Salt
1/2 tsp Mexican oregano; rubbed
2 tsp cider vinegar
1 can sliced potatoes; drained and liquid reserved
corn tortilla shells; fried and drained well
Mexican blend cheese; shredded

Original recipe makes 4



Brown beef on medium high heat. Drain well.

Return meat to pan. Reduce heat to medium and stir in onion and garlic. Cook 5 minutes. Add seasonings, vinegar and potato liquid; simmer for 20 minutes. Taste and adjust as desired.

I served the tacos topped with Mexican cheese, along with Mexican rice and homemade chips and salsa. Awesome! [I posted this recipe.]
