  • 2 pounds super lean ground beef
  • 3 cups cold water
  • 1 6 ounce can tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup homemade taco seasoning or 2 packets taco seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 sandwich buns or bread
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 2 to matoes sliced
  • 1 sweet onion sliced


  • Break up and brown the ground beef in a large soup pot over medium high heat. When just browned and no longer pink, add the water, tomato paste and taco seasoning and stir well. Bring to a boil, stir well, and lower heat. Stirring frequently, simmer for about 30 minutes, or until very thick. The goal for simmering this is to create a thick meat filling that holds together when scooped onto a bun. It should not have sauce running off it, but should still be very moist.
