Taco Tuesday: Tex Mex Beef Tacos

Tex Mex Beef Tacos

It’s TACO TUESDAY! So, for today’s taco we have Tex Mex Beef Tacos…all the flavors of the Southwest bundled into a wonderful little tortilla…

Tex Mex Beef Tacos
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 lb lean ground beef (93% lean)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon sea salt
dash red pepper flakes
1/2 cup chicken broth
8 oz can corn, drained
1/2 ripe avocado
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
Queso Fresco cheese or white Cheddar cheese
14 1/2 oz can black beans
8 small flour tortillas
2 limes, quartered

In a medium skillet, sauté diced onions and red peppers for five minutes. In another skillet, brown the ground beef a few minutes. Add the cumin, chili powder, paprika, coriander, turmeric, oregano, salt and red pepper flakes. Continue to sauté until beef is cooked through. Add chicken broth and simmer a few minutes to combine all those Tex Mex flavors.

Add the corn to the onions and red peppers and heat through.

Meanwhile make Avocado Crema – combine the avocado, mayonnaise and sour cream. Blend well, adding 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4-1/2 teaspoon chili powder (depending on your preference). Heat the black beans and tortillas.

To assemble Tex Mex Beef Tacos: Spread the Avocado Crema on heated tortilla, top with spiced cooked beef, corn mixture, black beans & chunks of Queso Fresco or white cheddar cheese. Squeeze a quarter of lime on each taco.
