Easy 30-minute Tacos

Recipes

July 4, 2019

This delicious, easy 30-minute tacos recipe will be a real treat for you and your family. You can also sneak in lots of veggies in there and the kids won’t even notice. You can make-ahead the beef filling, freeze it, re-heat and then stuff in taco shells for any given meal. How easy can that get? And let’s be honest, there’s never a wrong day to have a taco!

WHAT YOU’LL LOVE ABOUT THIS

First, they have loads of healthy goodness in there. I added diced tomatoes, red kidney beans and carrots. You can also add celery, black beans, and even sweet corn. Then add some herbs like coriander, and fresh lettuce, tomatoes for some added crunch. And oh, avocado can be another option too if you want to take the taste a notch higher. I’ve tried to add guacamole and it’s out-of-this-world delicious!

Second, they can be done in under half an hour. Need I say more?

CAN I USE OTHER MEAT?

I’ve also used turkey and chicken instead of beef and it tastes as delicious. And if you want this to be meat-free you can even sub the minced beef with lentils or vegan mince.

For some more healthy family recipes, you would love these Honey Glazed Siracha Turkey Meatballs or my zucchini lasagna.

Now who’s ready to make some tacos?
