A common conversation I hear from friends is how we all seem to end up in a meal time rut.  We all want new ideas, but we need EASY ideas.  This meal was born from the need to mix up life a little bit, but not so much that the kids won’t eat it.  We have a couple picky eaters in our house, so we just went light on the taco seasoning.  We also kept the lettuce, tomato and sour cream on the side so that we could each add the amount we desired.

Since part of our livelihood as farmers comes from raising animals we always have plenty of beef and especially ground beef.  We are grateful for the opportunity to raise pork, beef and turkey and we’ve always eaten what we produce.  So, we enjoyed making this twist on classic tacos from our ground beef.

I’m glad to say we found a winner in this simple recipe!
