  1. Cook beef in large skillet over medium-high heat about 7 minutes or until crumbled and no longer pink, stirring occasionally; drain. Add 1 can undrained tomatoes and seasoning mix; mix well. Stir in water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, drain remaining can of tomatoes; set aside.
  3. Spoon meat mixture evenly onto tortillas; top with lettuce, drained tomatoes and cheese.


  • Cook's Tips:
  • For a milder flavor, use Ro*Tel® 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.

Yes, the best. I will be using the Rockin taco recipe from this day forward. The perfect amount of spice, but I like kick.

I added onion to the meat. I also replaced the meat with ground turkey .
