Rotel Tacos

Taco Tuesday just got better with these Rotel Tacos! Take the standard ingredients from a taco kit but add some extra flavor with a Rotel cheese sauce. This recipe is ready in under 30 minutes and is perfect for a quick and yummy meal.

Ingredients List:

Olive Oil White Onion Ground Beef Taco Seasoning Packet Rotel Diced Tomatoes Velveeta Cheese Nacho Taco Shells Shredded Lettuce

In a medium pan, heat the olive oil until warm. Then add the white onion and saute for 2-3 minutes until the onion softens.

Add the ground beef and prepare according to the Taco Seasoning packet’s instructions. Once the seasoning has been added, set the meat aside.

In a small pot, add the can of Rotel Diced tomatoes and the velveeta cheese. Stir until the cheese melts and a cheese sauce is formed!

Warm the taco shells, then assemble  by filling the taco shells first with lettuce, then taco meat, and then top with the velveeta cheese sauce.


Expert Tips:

Some recipes call for mixing the Rotel tomatoes and the velveeta right into the cooked beef. You can do this if you prefer, but I like being able to control the amount of each ingredient which is why I prepare them separately.
