We also have a Shrimp Taco Recipe, a grilled Margarita Shrimp recipe, and a Mexican Shrimp Recipe that is a take on Shrimp Scampi.

Beef Taco Recipe


  • 1 1/2lbs.mexican beef
  • Shredded or chopped head or romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 lb. mild cheddar cheese, grated
  • slices of tomato
  • hard (formed) taco shells
  • guacamole, optional
  • sour cream, optional


Hold two taco shells up on a plate with one hand.

With a slotted spoon, scoop up and drain the beef and put it into the taco shells, filling them about 1/3 to 1/2 full.

Next add the lettuce, tomato, and a small hand full of cheese. If you decide to add the guacamole and/or sour cream, do it after the lettuce and finish off with the cheese.

This taco recipe is perfect served with refried beans and rice. Let’s not forget to add a little salsa too!
