  • Meanwhile, drain remaining can of tomatoes; set aside.

  • Spoon meat mixture evenly onto tortillas; top with lettuce, drained tomatoes and cheese.

Cook's Tips:

For a milder flavor, use Ro*Tel(R) Mild Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies. Or, drain the liquid off the second can of tomatoes to reduce the spiciness of the tomatoes used on top of the tacos. Crisp taco shells may be used in place of flour tortillas, if desired.

Pretty good recipe! Although I drained the Rio Tel before adding them to the meat the flavor was great! I'd highly recommend draining the meat so no big grease is in your meat when you eat the tacos. Also no need to add more tomatoes on top of the tacos as the Rio Tel adds plenty of tomatoes in the meal already. Overall really good and works well with sour cream in the tacos:) Read More

Easy. Can substitute other diced tomatoes or picante sauce in the meat sauce. I added some chopped onion and garlic to the beef. Flexible recipe to add or subtract some spice/heat. Use fresh chopped tomatoes lettuce and good cheese for the toppings. I like corn tortillas lightly browned in a cast iron skillet. Read More

This is a great simple & easy recipe for tacos. My wife & I liked it better than the more elaborate ones we have used in the past. We used Rotell for the meat portion but used fresh tomatoes for the topping along with chopped onion and shredded cheese. We did not have any lettuce but it was still delicious. Read More

Family said they were fantastic. Tomatoes gave it a good taste. We paired them with cheese shells for a keto meal. Read More
