Be sure and buy the mild version of salsa verde if you’re making these for kids. The mild salsa verde is not too spicy, especially when paired with the taco toppings. Plus, my secret for the best ground beef tacos is to add a little bit of brown sugar to the meat. It pairs so well with the spices.

They do make medium heat and hot salsa verde so if you want a kick then be sure and use one of those.Β

Tips for making salsa verde ground beef tacos

  • To save time, use a bag of pre-shredded lettuce. I always do this because it’s so easy. You’ll find shredded lettuce by the other bagged salad mixes in the grocery store.Β 
  • Put all the toppings in bowls and set out buffet style on the table.Β 
  • For the best taco in the world, follow the instruction on the crunchy corn taco box to heat the taco shells. It makes a huge difference in how good the tacos are. Typically, you place the taco shells on a cookie sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 5-6 minutes. The shells get brown and toasty and have this incredible crunch to them.Β 
  • I like to chop up some cilantro and mix it in with the cooked meat. I love the flavor it adds.Β
