Meat Tacos

Posted on December 19, 2011.


I recommend you try this dish with organic ground chicken.


1 1/2 lbs ground meat
1/2 onion diced
2 jalapenos diced
1/4 cup cilantro diced
3 cloves garlic minced
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons taco seasoning mix (see recipe)
Salt & pepper
1/4 cup red wine
6-8 taco shells
6 oz grated cheddar cheese
Salsa (see recipe)


Pre-heat over to 400 degrees.

In a pan on high flame, thoroughly cook meat until browned, stirring constantly breaking up the meat. Scrape the meat into a bowel and set aside. Drain off any excess grease and juices from the meat back into the pan.

Add olive oil and then brown the onions. After 2-3 minutes, add the garlic and jalapenos.

When vegetables are brown, deglaze with red wine and let cook until wine reduces. Then add meat and mix together with taco seasoning mix, fresh cilantro, salt and pepper.

Cook for 10 minutes on medium heat.

Place taco shells on baking sheet and place in oven for 5-10 minutes until lightly brown.

Serve meat mix with taco shells, grated cheese and salsa.
