  • 1 lb ground beef lean
  • 1 pkt taco seasoning
  • cup water
  • cheddar or Mexican Blend Cheese
  • lettuce shredded
  • tomatoes diced
  • sour cream
  • taco sauce
  • cilantro
  • garlic salt or salt to taste
  • individual bags of Doritos or Fritos


  • In a skillet over medium high heat, cook one pound of lean ground beef, sprinkle on a little garlic salt (In case you are new here, I use garlic salt on everything) or salt to taste.  If necessary drain fat off meat. Then add the taco seasoning packet and ⅔ cups of water.  Let simmer until thickened. 
  • Pack Taco Meat into a thermos to keep warm. Pack desired toppings in plastic containers.
  • Open Doritos or Frito bag. If desired crush chips a little. Layer in meat and toppings. Grab a fork and dig in. (Pictured bag is split open, so layers can be seen. Typically made opening bag from top, as normally opened, and putting in toppings is less messy to eat.)


Notes: When making taco meat for meals, store leftover meat freeze meat in freezer bags in individual servings. Heat in microwave or on stove top for lunches.
