Taco Bell tacos

Last night my husband and I enjoyed tacos. Something that is very simple to make and very fun to create. Done in mere minutes and an enjoyable light snack.

Servings 4
Prep time: 10 min
Total time: 12 min


4 Hard or Soft Shell Tacos
1 lb Ground beef
1/2 cup Tomato sauce 
1/2 Diced onion, tomato, carrot
1/2  lettuce Thinly sliced 
Shredded cheese
Optional: sour cream
Optional: Bbq sauce
Seasonings: salt, pepper, onion powder, taco seasoning


Take your ground meat and cook it in a little bit of olive oil, until nicely browned. To make the original hard shell taco bell tacos, you will season the meat with your taco seasoning mix, salt, pepper, onion powder etc. ( if you don't have taco seasoning, substitute it for something like chilli powder, or other seasonings) once your meat is the way you like it, seasoning wize, you can either leave it dry for the original taco bell way or add in your tomato sauce for a more juicy taco and mix in well, cook on low heat for another 5 min. Then set aside to cool.

On a plate, seperate each of you taco toppings just as I did pictured above to facilitate your taco construction : - ) this is also a fun way to set it up when serving guests or for the kids. It gives everyone the ability to build the taco the way they want.

The Taco Bell styled taco is built 2 ways. On you hard shell taco put in your ground meat and on top of that add a lot of lettuce, then sprinkle on your tomato, onion and last shredded cheese. Another way to do it you want a creamy center: add a tsp of sour cream directly on top of the meat before adding in the lettuce.

Now for my own soft shell taco recipe, it tastes absolutely amazing and would have never known until I tried it. Honestly, I liked this even better than the original Taco Bell recipe. Absolutely delicious.

1 lb ground meat
4 Soft shell tacos
Bbq sauce


Cook your ground meat until golden, add in bbq sauce and cook on low for 5 min, set aside to cool. Take your soft shell tacos and put them in a frying pan just to warm up and soften it. Warm for a few seconds then flip over to the other side and warm a few more seconds.

Put your taco together by adding the bbq meat, optional you can add in the lettuce, tomato, onion and cheese.

Seriously, very delicious...
