Tortillas with ground beef and guacamole


Ground beef

1 lb ground beef or ground lamb

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp Tex-Mex seasoning

1 cup of water

salt and pepper


2 avocados

1 tomato, diced

½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped

1 tbsp olive oil

1 lime, the juice

salt and pepper

For serving

1½ cups shredded Mexican cheese

3 oz. shredded lettuce

Corn or kidney beans (optional)

Chilli (optional)

Onions (optional)

Wheat tortillas




Bring the ground beef out of the refrigerator a while before frying. Cold ground beef will cool down the frying pan and the ground beef will be boiled and not fried. The latter tastes a lot better.

Place a large frying pan over medium-high heat and heat up some oil. Add the ground beef and fry until cooked through.

Add the tex-mex seasoning and water and stir. Let simmer until most of the water is gone. Taste to see if it needs additional seasoning.

In the meantime, make the guacamole from diced avocado, diced tomatoes, freshly squeezed lime juice, olive oil and a couple of handfuls of fresh cilantro. Salt and pepper to taste.

Serve in a tortilla, with shredded cheese, leafy greens, and some corn or beans.

For warm and moist tortillas you'll need a warmer. And what could be better than a colorful and ceramic tortilla warmer? Grab yours here
