    Cookgirl's Note:

    From with a few small changes. If you click on the words 'chili sauce' in the list of ingredients, it will link you to a definition of chili sauce in the Kitchen Dictionary. There are also copycat recipes for Heinz Chili Sauce on this site posted by members. I strongly recommend preparing your own chili sauce over store bought. Just be sure to choose a recipe without HFCS or substitute with a better sweetener: honey, agave, raw, etc. Happy Autumn, everyone! Note: last time this was prepared I realized half way through cooking I was out of taco seasoning and used a homemade baharat spice mix: Baharat Spice Blend. Yum! fyi 9 Nov 2010

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    Taco meat

    • 2 lbs ground beef (we buy a local grass fed beef or buffalo but ground turkey is good, too)
    • 1 cup onion, minced
    • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
    • chili sauce, 8 to 12 ounces (read recipe introduction)
    • 1 cup cranberry sauce
    • 1 -2 teaspoon salt-free taco seasoning mix, to taste
    • 12 flour tortillas (for fun I used mini taco shells) or 12 corn taco shells (for fun I used mini taco shells)

    Toppings or fixings

    • shredded cheddar cheese, fresh cilantro, shredded lettuce, crema mexicana (can substitute other cheese varieties ( queso fresco, cotija, etc.) or sour cream


    1. 1
      Note: I make my own cranberry sauce and freeze for later use in recipes. Or, if you have any leftovers from the Holidays, that works out conveniently, too. I recommend this basic recipe: Basic Cranberry Sauce.
    2. 2
      Cook beef, onion and garlic in large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, for 6 to 8 minutes or until beef is cooked through and vegetables are softened; drain.
    3. 3
      Stir chili sauce, cranberry sauce and seasoning mix into beef mixture.
    4. 4
      Reduce heat. Cook for 10 minutes or until flavors are blended. Do not allow mixture to dry out, adding a little bit of water if necessary.
    5. 5
      Divide beef mixture evenly among taco shells.
    6. 6
      Top with cheese, tomato, lettuce and sour cream-any or all of your favorite taco garnishes.
