Simple 7 Layer Tacos

Driving home from work today, I knew that we needed to make a menu change from our original plans to something easy and delicious – read: tacos. After a long day at work, who really wants to spend hours in the kitchen preparing a meal that is so quickly devoured?


What you need:

-ground beef

taco seasoning

-flour tortillas

-refried beans

-corn

-salsa

-guacamole 

-shredded lettuce

-shredded cheese

-sour cream 

-lime

-cilantro


Directions:

  1. In a separate bowl, empty a container of sour cream.
  2. Squeeze fresh lime juice into the bowl, and add chopped cilantro.
  3. Stir together and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  4. In a large skillet, brown ground beef.
  5. When it is all done, add seasoning and 2/3 cup of water.
  6. Stir, and cook an additional 4-5 minutes.
  7. While you doing steps 4-6, cook corn and refried beans and then set aside.
  8. In a warmed flour tortilla, spread a small spoonful of refried beans into a thin layer.
  9. Next, layer small spoonfuls of beef, corn, lettuce, cheese, salsa, guacamole, and sour cream. (For an extra kick, top with hot sauce.)
  10. Serve and enjoy!
