For Tacos:
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 cup chunky salsa
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • ½ tablespoon cumin
  • ½ tablespoon turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • ½ tablespoon coriander
  • ½ tablespoon paprika
  • ½ tablespoon red pepper flakes (to taste, optional)
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Here’s How:

  1. In a large skillet over medium high heat, brown the ground beef. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. When about half of the meat is browned, add the salsa and minced garlic. Stir until the garlic is fragrant, about 2-3 minutes
  3. Stir in the cumin, turmeric, onion powder and coriander until completely combined. Let the beef simmer for a few minutes to evaporate off any excess liquid in the skillet.
  4. Add the paprika and red pepper flakes (optional) to the skillet. Stir until combined then remove the skillet from the heat.
  5. To build the walking tacos: select your favorite mini bag of chips. Add a scoop of the taco meat and then top with your desired taco toppings. Enjoy!
