  • 1 box (4.7 oz) Old El Paso™ Stand ‘n Stuff™ taco shells
  • 1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 1 package (1 oz) Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
  • 2/3 cup water

  1. Heat oven to 325°F. Heat taco shells in oven as directed on box.
  2. Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, cook ground beef over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in taco seasoning mix and water. Reduce heat to medium; cook uncovered about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until water has evaporated. Remove from heat.
  3. Spoon beef mixture into heated taco shells. Top with cheese, lettuce and tomato.
