Mixed Up Tacos

I wanted to show you what they looked like before I added on all the fixings.
So tonight I came home and couldn't think of anything to fix. So I went with all the quickest meals in my memory bank. TACOS! They are always quick. For some reason I decided to be brave and try to make up a recipe on my own. So here is an introduction to my new taco.
1 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 medium red potato (diced small)
1 carrot (cut down the middle and then sliced)
1/2 medium onion (chopped)
1/2 pound ground beef
1 1/2 tsps salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp cumin
1 TBS Pace Salsa ( or whatever salsa you like)
Add the EVOO to a medium saute pan. Add the potato, carrots and onion. Saute on medium-low for about 10 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Don't let them burn. If medium-low is to high turn it down to low. Once it is ready add in the ground beef, salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin and salsa. Cook for about 10 more minutes or until ground beef is done.
Slightly heat up some corn tortillas.
Serve with refried beans, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and whatever else you want on your taco.:)
The Results:
I thought these turned out pretty good. You can sneak your veggies in it too. Isn't it nice when you can sneak them in?
