I rarely use store bought seasonings when making ground beef tacos, preferring this well loved and well used recipe. These taste so much more authentic!
1 lb ground beef
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4-1/2 t oregano or marjoram, rubbed
2 T Mexican chili powder (I used hot)
1/2 t salt
3/4 cup water
corn tortilla shells, fried and drained well
white Mexican cheese (I used queso cojita)
Brown beef on medium high heat. Drain well.
Reduce heat to medium and add remaining ingredients; simmer for 20 minutes.
I served the tacos topped with Mexican cheese, lettuce and tomato, along with Mexican rice and my salsa.
The recipe for the salsa can be found here: http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.jsp?articleId=281474977100013
One of my favorite meals of all.
