Family Tradition Taco's Meat

This is a staple in our home. Tacos are such a favorite of everyone's. I grew up with my mom making this recipe, and just love it!! I think it’s better than most restaurants. You can spice it up or cool it down easy enough by adjusting which type of Rotel you use. I use the mild Rotel but whatever works for you!

  • 2 pounds ground beef (90/10)
  • 1 medium diced onion
  • 1 medium diced green bell pepper
  • 3 small cloves of garlic minced
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 can Rotel 
  • 1 14oz can diced tomatoes


Lightly brown 2 pounds of ground beef then drain off any fat

Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic cook until the vegetables are tender

Add Rotel, diced tomatoes, salt, pepper, and cumin

Cook until the liquid cooks down around 45 minutes on medium

Serve in Taco shell or flour tortillas or on chips! This makes a great taco salad too

Don't forget the toppings we like lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and sour cream
