Anyone else want a simple, great dinner in less than 30 mins? My husband had 3 plates yesterday LOL

Step 1. 

Set heat to Medium High, In your Pan or Dutch Oven pour in about 2 tbs of avocado oil, Cut the onion in small cubes and throw them in with about 2tbs of crushed garlic. let them cook until they are a light brown.

Step 2.

Throw in the 2 packs of ground beef, with 2 TBS of Soy Sauce and season with Grizzly Joes Chipotle seasoning.  This takes about 10 minutes to cook.

You can now serve the tacos in a pre made shell ( make sure to heat), or in a corn tortilla and fry them in a pan with avocado oil. (this is my favorite type, my husband had 3 plates of food, this is rare) Serve tacos with whatever you want. Tomatoes, Arugula, Shredded Cheese, Sour Creme, Guacamole, Salsa. 

Step 4.

I served with fire roasted corn that was frozen from Trader Joes, heated them up in a pot. Also served with a side salad. Arugula, avocado oil, salt an Pepper.
