Beef and Red Bean Tacos + Paypal Cash Giveaway

disclosure

Combine ground beef with red beans to make an unforgettable taco night at home! An easy way to sneak in a few veggies too like onions and bell peppers, too!

Beef and Red Bean Tacos

We love a good taco night at our house. We recently had friends over for dinner and I made these beef and red bean tacos. Tacos are always an easy go-to when entertaining. And let’s get real who doesn’t like tacos? For the kids I made them an easy cheese and refried bean quesadilla which they both gobbled up. Ryder even had some of the beef and red bean mixture and seemed to really enjoy it. He definitely loves all the Mexican recipes I cook! 

Beef and Red Bean Tacos

By adding beans to your taco mixture I feel like you can stretch it a little further because beans can act as a good filler substitute. I chopped up a white onion and half of a red and green bell pepper. I figured this is a good way to disguise the veggies and get a little extra serving of veggies in for the day. After the meat and veggies were cooked I added a  4.5 oz. can of Old El Paso Diced Green Chiles . This added a nice additional flavor to the tacos. Followed by a small can of tomato sauce and the taco seasoning packet. I mixed it all together and then let it simmer on low for 5 minutes.

While the taco meat simmered I then baked the taco shells. I love using the  Old El Paso Crunchy Taco Dinner Kit. It comes with everything you need for taco night; crunchy taco shells, taco seasoning, and taco sauce! And because I was entertaining for a crowd I picked up an additional pack of 12 crunchy taco shells. After the taco shells were cooked I added in the beef and bean mixture and topped with a generous portion of shredded Mexican cheese.

Then let your guest top their tacos with whatever they enjoy most. I love making guacamole with  Avocados From MexicoWhether you’re feeding a family of four or entertaining a large group of friends, avocados are always the perfect addition to any meal. Is there a fruit more versatile than the avocado? You can slice it, dice it, smash it, or serve it whole. It tastes great at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, or as a satisfying snack any time of day. And the best part is, you get the same nutritional boost whether you serve it on a sandwich, mix it into a dip, blend it into a smoothie, or eat it all by itself. In fact, avocados are so popular at parties and festivities that people across the United States enjoy more than 1.3 billion pounds of avocados per year.
