Easy Beef Tacos


  • 1 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ medium white onion, diced
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1¼ lbs. ground beef (80% lean)
  • 2 T. taco seasoning
  • 1 10-oz. can fire-roasted tomatoes with green chilis, drained
  • 4 oz. shredded Mexican-blend cheese (+ extra for serving or topping)

Optional, to Serve:

Taco shells or lettuce wraps, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, salsa, and/or extra cheese.


  1. Prepare the taco seasoning by combining all ingredients in a bowl; transfer to an airtight container. Set aside.
  2. Add olive oil to a large skillet set over medium heat. Add diced onion and garlic and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Stir to combine and sauté, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens and develops some color, approximately 4-5 minutes.
  3. Add beef to skillet and cook until browned, approximately 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat and drain excess fat from skillet.
  4. Add taco seasoning, fire-roasted tomatoes and green chilis and stir to combine. Stir frequently until tomatoes are heated through and the beef mixture is thoroughly coated in the taco seasoning. Taste, and add additional taco seasoning, if desired.
  5. Remove from heat and top with shredded cheese. Cover for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is completely melted. Serve with desired accompaniments. Enjoy!
