A quick and easy weeknight meal, only 20 minutes to have these fantastic ground beef tacos on the table! Plus, the prepared taco meat freezes beautifully!
Is there anything better then ground beef tacos that are on the table in 20 minutes? Probably not. I know it’s definitely one of our favourites – one of those meals that we make very, very regularly. And will never tire of.
I love these ground beef tacos because they’re so fast and easy to make, but also because you can make a giant batch of the meat and freeze it in portions so an even faster meal is waiting for you in the freezer. When all you have to do is defrost your ready made taco meat and chop up the toppings, supper is literally minutes away.
This meat is pretty versatile too – we’ve used it in hard ground beef tacos as shown here, but also in soft tacos, taco salad and nachos. It’s taco meat – it’s fantastic no matter how you serve it!
So, since it’s 30 Minute Thursday, and Cinco de Mayo today, I really needed to share our favourite ground beef tacos with you. I’ve been making this recipe for years and absolutely love it. Fast, easy, simple, and full of flavour – we love this taco meat and I’m sure you will too!

This is similar to my ground beef taco recipe but I love that you added the jalapeno for some kick! These look like they need to be on the menu for next week's taco tuesday!

These tacos are making me hungry! I love meals that come together as quickly and easily as these. And it's even better when you can make a big batch and freeze some for later!

I definitely love how fast and easy tacos are! They are one of my go-to meals for busy weeknights. These ones look delish-- and I love the idea of making extra meat to freeze!
