Tired of the same old taco routine?  Change things up a bit and use picante sauce instead of taco seasoning.  The result is a taco filling that's moist, flavorful and oh so delicious.


  • 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


  • Tips

    • Serving Suggestion: You can customize your tacos by adding additional toppings like sour cream and guacamole!
  • Step 1

    Cook the beef in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.

  • Step 2

    Stir the picante sauce in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low.  Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 3

    Divide the beef mixture among the taco shells. Top with the cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and salsa.
