Ground Beef Tacos ~ bold, spicy chipotle flavored ground beef tacos from scratch. Also perfect for enchiladas or nachos and ready in under 30 minutes.  

When it comes to sharing recipes, sometimes I overlook the obvious, like these Ground Beef Tacos. Who doesn’t love a good taco (except maybe my grandkids who are in that ‘suspicious food’ state of toddlerhood). Crunchy or soft but always loaded with spicy meat, lettuce, cheese and fresh salsa.

You’ve probably made tacos using a packaged dry seasoning mix and if you’re happy with that, don’t rock the boat.

But I’m guessing since you’re reading this, you know in your heart of hearts there are better tasting tacos out there. If you’re also wondering (a) what’s actually in that seasoning package and (b) why your homemade tacos don’t taste as good as the ones in your favorite Mexican restaurant, I urge you to give this recipe a try.

Well, I’ve gone and done it. I turned one of my favorite appetizers, Chicken Salsa Verde Dip into an actual meal. I don’t mean an appetizer that I eat as a meal something I *may* or *may not* have done. Salsa Verde Enchiladas are rolled tortillas filled with deliciously seasoned pork Carnitas I made the other day in my slow cooker (don’t you just LOVE a 2 for 1 meal?!) slathered in an easy, creamy sour cream-salsa verde sauce then topped with as much cheese as I feel like because that’s just one of the perks of cooking at home, then baked until they’re all golden and gorgeous with gooey melted cheese and lightly crisp edges. No Carnitas? No problem. Pick up a rotisserie chicken from wherever you shop for a delicious option.

Mexican and Italian happen to be two of my favorite cuisines so I’m always eager to tackle a new recipe in either department. Our youngest daughter recently spent a month in Los Angeles, where I’m told you can find some of the best Mexican food other than well, Mexico. She raved about the Carnitas that up until now I had never tried, but I knew this had to change. I wanted an easy, everyday version ~ real food for real people. This Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas checks all the boxes.
