Salsa Ingredients

  • 1 14.5 oz can Red Gold Petite Diced Tomatoes mostly drained
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/2 diced onion
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro diced
  • pinch of sugar
  • juice of 1/2 lime

Taco Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream optional
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce


  • Preheat a large skillet, over medium heat. Add ground beef and cook about 8 minutes or until no longer pink; drain.
  • While the beef is cooking add all of the salsa ingredients into a medium-sized mixing bowl and stir to combine. When finished, place plastic wrap over the bowl and refrigerate until ready to use. I will sometimes make this in the morning so that all the flavors have time to combine.
  • Add taco seasoning packet, and water and bring to a boil. Reduce to heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Place taco meat into a serving bowl.
  • Fold down the top of the bag of corn chips and layer the meat on top of the chips. Next add cheese, lettuce, salsa, and sour cream.
