Hidden Veggie Tacos

Untitled design-8

These tacos make a regular appearance in our house. They are a great way to get in extra vegetables–and for the veggie haters in your house, they won’t even notice the vegetables!


1 lb lean ground beef

2 medium onions

3 cloves of garlic

3 medium carrots

1 medium zucchini

1 6oz bag baby spinach

taco seasoning of your choosing (I use Penzey’s bold taco seasoning, you are welcome to use what you prefer)


Heat a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add ground beef to pan, break it apart with a wooden spoon. Let ground beef brown, stirring occasionally.

While the ground beef browns, finely chop all the vegetables. The fastest way I’ve found to do this is using my food processor. Add vegetables mixture to ground beef, and let cook until softened.

Add taco seasoning according to package directions, let simmer until taco mixture is your desired consistency.

I like to serve this taco filling with corn tortillas, lettuce wraps, chopped tomatoes, avocado, and salsa. Enjoy!
