What’s for Dinner: Broccoli Tacos

{photo by Jenny Bischoff}

Broccoli Tacos

serves 4-6

I honestly don’t remember where I got this idea, but it really is more of an easy twist than a recipe. I attempted to write it down here, but you can wing it – the idea is just to add broccoli to your usual taco meat mixture. So you could do this with ground beef, ground turkey, chicken, black beans… whatever you like to use to make tacos. It’s a sneaky, easy, delicious way to get more veggies into a meal!


1 lb ground beef

taco seasoning (I make my own using this recipe)

salt to taste, if needed

1/2 cup water

2-4 cups of broccoli, as desired, cut into bite sized pieces

tortillas – soft flour or corn, or hard corn shells


shredded cheese




sour cream


olives, etc


In a large skillet brown the ground beef and drain the grease if needed. Add the taco seasoning and salt (if your taco seasoning is unsalted), stir for a minute, then add water, and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the broccoli to the pan, cover, and cook for about 5 minutes or until the broccoli is cooked through. Scoop beef/broccoli mixture into tortillas and add toppings as desired.
