Taco Bar!!!!!

Check Spelling
My Taco Meat:

1 TB canola oil
1/2 red onion, chopped
1/2 red bell, chopped
1.5 lbs ground sirloin
1 15oz. can of Enchilada Sauce
1 packet of taco seasoning.

1. Add the oil and brown the veggies. Add the ground sirloin. Brown. Drain any grease. Add the Sauce and seasoning packet. Cook for a little longer.

My Guacamole

2-3 TB of red onion
2-3 TB of cilantro
2-3 TB red bell pepper
2 TB Jalapeno (optional)
pinch salt
1-2 TB lime juice
3 avocados.

1. Throw the veggies in a food processor. Then add the avocados and mash them with a potato masher. Add the lime and salt. Mix.
(I sometimes roast the bell pepper and garlic and put it in my guac. It taste amazing. It is only when I have time or company.)

Spiced Blackbeans

1 15 oz. can of black beans
2 jalapenos
1 clove garlic
1/4 cp. onion
1 TB canalo oil

1. Add the oil and saute the veggies. Add the beans and cook for 20 min.

On the bar:

2 cps. Lettuce
2 cps. Cheddar cheese
My Homemade salsa (Below)
My Spiced Black beans
My Guacamole
2 cps diced tomatoes
1/2 cp diced jalapenos
Of course, the ground beef.
I used both hard corn taco shells and soft flour shells.

I just put each in their own dish....Self serve.
My daughter tried tacos for the first time tonight...She loved that she could make her own and she loved them. It is a great idea to do with kids. Add your own condiments...Enjoy!!!!

  1. Oh, I could so go for this right now! Usually I'm too lazy to get anything more exciting than cheese and sour cream on my tacos!


Thank you so much for letting me know how you feel about my dishes.
