Beef & Bean Tacos

I finally had a chance to make dinner for my husband using the homemade tortillas I'd whipped up a week or so ago, and I decided to go with one of his favorites: tacos.  These soft tacos are very easy to make and can be customized with any ingredients you or the fam might like.

  • 1 1/4 pound extra-lean ground beef
  • 1/2 packet ranch dressing mix
  • 1/2 packet cheesy taco seasoning mix (or regular taco seasoning mix)
  • 1/2 cup refried beans, at room temperature
  • Shredded Mexican cheese
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Pico de gallo
  • Cook ground beef in fry pan over medium heat.
  • Once cooked through, mix in ranch packet and cheesy taco seasoning mix, blending thoroughly.  (No need to add liquid; just use the little bit of grease from the hamburger.  The cheesy taco mix adds some creaminess to the hamburger, which is why I like it.)
  • Assemble tacos by spreading a layer of the refried beans onto the tortilla and topping with shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, ground beef mixture and pico de gallo.
Note: Depending on how you assemble your tacos, you may have some ground beef left over.  Just refrigerate it and use it to make these tasty tacos again.
