Ground beef tacos are delicious and budget friendly!

This easy recipe is so versatile.  You can make this with ground turkey instead of ground beef. We often mix both together.

The ground turkey takes on the taste of ground beef with all of the taco seasonings. This is a big savings and no one even notices.

If you need to stretch your meat budget, try adding black beans or rice to the ground beef mixture. This can really help to stretch the taco meat.

In addition, using different types of salsa can change this recipe quite a bit.  For instance, since I’m usually serving kids, I choose a mild salsa that is on sale.  However, if you love spicy food, you can substitute this for a spicier salsa.

Also, this recipe would work great with a delicious verde salsa as well.  I love cooking with this homemade quick salsa verde de tomatillo recipe. 

By shopping when things are on sale I save money on groceries and it really helps our budget.

Make sure you have a good skillet. 

We use a cast iron skillet and it’s perfect for this recipe. I have the Lodge cast iron skillet but you can see all the different brands here.

Cast iron is amazing! You can make so many different recipes and they are great for skillet recipes.

If you are not already cooking with one, you should! They are amazing and the food cooks so evenly.

Don’t be hesitant to use cast iron because it really is simple to use and maintain. It cooks the food so evenly and recipes turn out great.

Everyone will think this is the best ground beef taco recipe!

The kids love tacos and the recipe is so easy. The salsa in the taco meat really makes a difference. It has a ton of flavor to the taco recipe.

You can play with the recipe and make it your own. If you like heat, try adding some crushed red pepper or extra chili powder cumin seasoning to the meat.

This meat is so tasty and great with flour tortillas, burritos or taco salads. It is the perfect meal for everyone in the family to be able to enjoy.

Try it this week and see how easy Taco Tuesday can be. 🙂
