It took years to perfect the seasoning for these tacos! These classic American tacos are jazzed up with some easy queso - because everything is better with queso - but you can certainly skip the queso and top with your favorite taco toppings.


  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, grated

  • 1 Taco Seasoning Packet
  • 1 pound processed American cheese (Velveeta), cut into chunks

  • 3/4 cup cream

  • 1 can green chiles

  • Flour tortilla shells

  • 1 Jalapeno, sliced



  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in skillet and add garlic. Cook for about 1 minute then add the ground beef.

  2. Once ground beef is browned, add seasoning mix and 1/4 cup water. Mix and simmer until sauce is thickened
