  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef or ground chicken
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) Pace® Picante Sauce
  • 16 taco shell or flour tortillas (6-inch), warmed
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese or Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped tomato
  • 1 cup Pace® Chunky Salsa


  • Ground Beef: The best meat to use for taco meat is a simple ground beef, a  70-80% lean. The fat is going to help give flavor to the meat and we are able to  drain the grease prior to serving.
  • Tomato Sauce: grab any kind of canned, pureed tomato sauce. Or if you want  more spice you could use a thick salsa instead.
  • Oil: this is used for frying up the tortillas. Use either a canola or a vegetable oil.
  • Tortillas: white corn tortillas fry up perfectly to make a crisp taco shell. If you would prefer you could use flour tortillas and not fry them. I would recommend using tortillas that are 6 inches.
