MAKE IT CUTE
No need for taco seasoning mix, which is nothing more than stale, dried out spices, when you can make your own seasoned tacos in no time.
What You’ll Need: Serves 4
1 lb. ground turkey, chicken, or beef, preferably naturally-raised
1 tablespoon canola (or other mild) oil
1 large clove garlic, peeled
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon each: ground cumin, chili powder
1/2 teaspoon each: ground coriander, salt
1/4 teaspoon each: dried oregano, hot sauce
4 Romaine or leafy lettuce leaves
Optional: about 1/2 lb. grated jack or Chihuahua cheese; or Mexican crumbling cheese (Queso Fresco, Ranchito, or Queso Anejo Enchilado – my favorite)
Toppings: chopped cilantro, green onion, tomato, sour cream, bottled salsa, or make some Pico de Gallo
What You’ll Do:
2. Add the ground meat and sauté until the meat is cooked, frequently stirring to break up the meat. Add a little oil if the meat starts to stick. Stir in the spices, salt, oregano, and hot sauce; cook for another minute. Chop the lettuce across the leaves into thin strips.
To Serve: Place some lettuce on a tortilla, top with a large spoonful of taco meat, some crumbled cheese, and top with chopped cilantro or other toppings.
