These tacos are made with a deliciously seasoned ground beef filling, served in corn tortillas and finished with all the best toppings. They're likely to become a go-to weeknight dinner the whole family will enjoy, and you'll love how easy they are to prepare!

Let brown on bottom, about 3 minutes then flip, break up beef and continue to cook until almost cooked through, about 2 minutes.
Add garlic, chili powder, cumin, onion powder and continue to cook until beef is just cooked through, about 1 minute.
Pour in chicken broth and tomato sauce. Simmer over medium-low heat until sauce has reduced and thickened, about 3 - 5 minutes.
Serve warm over warmed tortillas with lettuce, cheese, tomatoes and other desired toppings (see notes).
*In addition to the chili powder if you'd like a spicing beef filling then you can add 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste.

Nutrition does not include optional toppings or oil for tortillas.TO COOK TORTILLAS
I like to cook them in a non-stick skillet or on an electric griddle in a little olive oil or vegetable oil over medium-high heat just briefly, about 15 - 20 seconds per side or until a few golden spots appear.
You don't need much oil (maybe 3/4 tsp per side, swirl to evenly coat tortillas or brush tortillas with oil then cook).
