This beef and corn taco filling isn’t much different than your basic ground beef taco meat made with taco seasoning. However, with a few extra additions, it ups the flavor. Plus, that corn added in there makes it possible to make a few more taco that if it was just the ground beef. Plus, it’s a nice cost effective way to be able to feed more with that pound of ground beef.

You star by browning the pound of ground beef with some onion. Once it’s browned, remove any excess grace that there may be. Next you are going to add in some garlic powder, taco seasoning, water, corn, and salsa.

Lately, when making my tacos, I have been sprinkling some shredded cheese in a skillet. I cook it oven medium-low heat until it starts to melt. Then I top it with a corn tortilla. Once the cheese starts to crisp on the tortilla, I flip and warm the other side. The result is a crispy, cheesy corn tortilla to make your taco with.
