Beef tacos are fun to put together and delicious to eat. Fill the tortillas with lettuce and beef, then each person can add his or her favorite toppings.

Cook's Notes

In place of beef, you can substitute ground turkey or chicken. To make the meat less spicy, remove jalapeno seeds and ribs before adding the chile, or omit it completely.

    I made it exactly as the recipe and added no topping, it tasted good and it was simple, but next time I´ll add at least an extra jalapeño (without seeds and ribs) to the filling to really feel the jalapeño flavor, i really missed it in this recipe. I also didn´t like the dripping oil drops when holding the taco with the hands, a tablespoon of cornstarch or flour to the mixture would certainly make the filling more taco ready
