Taco Night!

I love taco night.  

Brandon loves taco night.  

Everyone loves taco night.  

This last one might kind of sound like a blanket statement but I really think it's true.  Show me someone who doesn't like taco night and I'll retract my statement. And then I'll change their mind by sharing with them this simple taco stuffing recipe.  

This simple, yet glowing, taco stuffing recipe.  

Added bonus: this recipe was found within a collection of freezer friendly recipes on Martha Stewart's website.  So go ahead....double it.  


Taco Filling
adapted from Martha Stewart

cooking spray
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/2 of a small jalapeno pepper, chopped

1/2 tbl of cumin 
1/2 tbl of coriander
1 lb of lean ground beef (95% or leaner)
14 oz canned crushed tomatoes in tomato puree
salt to taste

Spray a large pan with cooking spray.  Add the onions, cook for about 5 minutes or until soft. Add garlic, jalapeno, chili pepper, cumin and coriander.  Cook for about a minute.   

Add the beef and cook until browned.  Stir in tomatoes and cook until liquid is absorbed, about 15-20 minutes. Season with salt.
