  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 + 1/2 oz taco seasoning
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 4 oz sour cream
  • 4 oz shredded cheese
  • 2 roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 bag shredded lettuce


  • Brown ground beef in skillet
  • Once browned, stir in 1 oz taco seasoning and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer for 5-10 minutes. Allow ground beef to cool slightly.
  • Mix sour cream and remaining taco seasoning together in a small bowl. Layer the sour cream flat onto a plate. (Use a large plate for family style, or 4 individual plates for smaller servings).
  • Top sour cream with shredded lettuce, ground beef, and preferred taco toppings and serve. 


  • Add your favorite taco toppings to make this a recipe all your own!
  • Homemade taco seasoning is best – but otherwise find a trustworthy brand without junk ingredients.
  • If dairy is an issue for you, you can leave the cheese off. Alternatively, you can try raw dairy cheddar. Forager also makes a great dairy-free sour cream alternative.
  • Use 80/20 ground beef in lieu of a leaner cut or ground turkey. The fat is flavorful, plus it can help improve weight loss on a keto diet.
