Ingredients

1 lb (450 g) lean ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tbsp (15 mL) chili powder
1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano
1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cumin (optional)
1/4 tsp (1 mL) dried red pepper flakes
1 cup (250 mL) Milk
1/3 cup (80 mL) tomato paste
Salt and pepper, to taste
12 taco shells

Toppings:
Shredded lettuce
Chopped tomato
Chopped green bell pepper
Salsa
Sour cream
Canadian Cheddar or 
Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).

In large nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium heat until browned. Drain off fat. Add onion, garlic, chili powder, oregano, cumin and red pepper flakes; cook until tender, about 5 min.

Stir in milk and tomato paste, mixing well; simmer for 5 to 10 min or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon into serving dish.

Meanwhile, heat taco shells upside down on baking sheet in oven for 3 to 5 min. To serve, spoon beef mixture into each shell and sprinkle with your favourite toppings.

Tips

For the Adventurous: For beef and bean burritos, add a can of drained and rinsed kidney beans to the beef mixture and spoon into soft tortillas, with toppings.

Healthy Eating Tip: Beef is a good source or iron. Iron is essential for the formation of red blood cells, for producing energy and in regulating the immune system.
