What is Cinco de Mayo?

Cinco de Mayo translated to mean the 5th of May. It is a holiday in Mexico that commemorates the Mexican Army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla. You may hear it referred to in Mexico as the Battle of Puebla Day.

Today it has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and is popular to celebrate in the United States.

A taco is probably the best known Mexican food worldwide. Today you can simply have a taco or take it to the next level and create an art of work with your taco! Some even call it the ‘art of eating with tortilla’.

What are common ingredients in Mexican dishes?

You might find these popular ingredients in most Mexican food recipes – beans, rice, avocados and limes. Fresh produce, bold herbs and spices and bright vegetables lie at the heart of the best Mexican food.

What is America’s favorite Mexican dish?

While that answer might vary from person to person, fajitas is one of most commonly eaten foods. It’s a versatile Tex Mex cuisine that can include meat served in a tortilla, but is also appealing with just veggies. Top it how you like and it’s a terrific meal!

These easy ground beef tacos are one of our favorite Mexican food recipes! They are simple, flavorful and ready in just 20 minutes! 
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 6



  • 1 pound ground beef , 80-90% lean
  • ½ cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 Tablespoons taco seasoning , more to taste
  • ½ cup salsa or tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup water , more as needed
  • 12 taco shells , or small tortillas

S&P to taste

    Toppings: shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole, salsa, cilantro


      • Add the ground beef and onion to a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until browned, stirring occasionally breaking up any large pieces. 
      • Drain off extra grease and add in the taco seasoning, salsa and water. Bring to a light simmer adding more water as desired.
      • Serve in taco shells as-is or place in a 9×13" dish to bake. Then add cheese and bake at 400°F for 10 minutes. 
      • Add desired toppings. 


      Optional: You can also add 1-2 Tablespoons of refried beans to the base of the tacos. If I’m adding them, I like to place them in a zip top bag and then snip the top off and place it on the bottom of the shell. 
      This recipe should make enough for about 2 Tablespoons of meat in each taco. 
      You can mix in some cooked rice and black beans to stretch the meat even further.
