1
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef

  1. Heat oven to 325°F. Heat taco shells in oven as directed on box.
  2. Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, cook ground beef over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in taco seasoning mix and water. Reduce heat to medium; cook uncovered about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until water has evaporated. Remove from heat.
  3. Spoon beef mixture into heated taco shells. Top with cheese, lettuce and tomato.
  4. Spoon sour cream into small resealable food-storage plastic bag. Seal bag; cut tiny hole in corner of bag. Pipe sour cream over top of each taco to resemble spiderweb.
