Taco Bell Taco

March 13, 2021  Online Recipe Guide Avatar

If you don’t think that packet of “Taco Bell” spices you buy in the grocery stores makes meat that tastes like the stuff they use at the giant Mexican food chain, you’d be correct. If you want to clone it right you’re going to have to whip up the taco meat from scratch using this original TSR recipe. Once you’ve prepped your meat, these steps will help you build your tacos the Taco Bell way, without any pesky talking Chihuahuas running through the kitchen. Check out the streaming video, and Todd will show you how it’s done while you follow along with the recipe. Now all you need is some hot sauce to top ’em off, right? Be here next week to clone Taco Bell’s tastiest (and hottest) hot sauce.

1 pound lean ground beef
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
dash garlic powder
1/2 cup water
12 taco shells
2 cups shredded lettuce
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1. In a medium bowl, combine the ground beef with the flour, chili powder, salt, minced onion, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder. Use your hands to thoroughly mix the ingredients into the ground beef.
2. Add the seasoned beef mixture to the water in a skillet over medium heat. Mix well with a wooden spoon or spatula, and break up the meat as it cooks. Heat for 5 to 6 minutes, or until browned. The finished product should be very smooth, somewhat pasty, with no large chunks of beef remaining.
3. Heat up the taco shells in a 375 degree oven for about 5 minutes.
4. Build each taco by spooning 2 to 3 tablespoons of the meat into a warm shell. Spread some of the shredded lettuce over the meat and then sprinkle some cheese over the top. Repeat with the remaining ingredients and serve immediately. (
Makes 12 tacos.
