Here’s another “Use What You Have” recipe! I wanted to do something for Taco Tuesday, and this is what I came up with. This post will be short and sweet with a link for another recipe for my homemade queso. 

To “kick it up” I added my Salsa con Queso to ordinary store-bought taco seasoning for ground meat. Click on the link above to find my queso recipe. As I said in that post, I always have some salsa in the freezer. 

I started by cooking two pounds of ground meat and preparing it per the instructions on the seasoning package. Of course, I used two packets of seasoning, but when it was time to add the water, I only used half of what is called for. 

Then, I mixed one cup of salsa and 1/2 cup of cheese sauce for the queso. Pour into the skillet over the meat and cook down until fully incorporated. All that’s left is to make the tacos! Pretty quick and easy and such a big hit with my men! The queso really does “kick it up”!!!


WHAT YOU WILL NEED: (what I used)

  • 2 lbs Ground Chuck
  • 2 packets Taco Seasoning
  • 2/3 cup Water
  • 1 cup Salsa
  • 1/2 cup Cheese Sauce
  • Tortillas

  • Lettuce

Whatcha think?
