Recipe Continues Below
- In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is brown; drain. Stir in water and taco seasoning mix; heat to simmering. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until thickened.
- While beef is cooking, heat taco shells as directed on package, and assemble remaining ingredients. Divide beef mixture among shells; finish with fresh toppings (cheese, tomatoes, green onions, cilantro). Serve with guacamole.
- No cherry tomatoes? No problem! Diced fresh tomatoes make an excellent substitute.
- Take it to the next level with even more fun red and green additions: a drizzle of hot sauce, salsa, sliced jalapeños, diced avocado or lime wedges.
- Purchase an 8-oz container of guacamole, or make your own!
