10 servings (serving size: 1 taco)

Kids will love the zesty taste and the fun of assembling their own lunch.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a large skillet, heat oil over moderate heat until warm. Add the onion, half the oregano, and the cumin; sauté for 5 minutes.

Step 2

Add the ground meat and cook 5 minutes, stirring well to incorporate all the ingredients. Stir in the tomato paste, salt, pepper, salsa, water, and remaining oregano; cook another 6 minutes. (The meat mixture can be cooked several hours ahead of time and refrigerated. Before serving, reheat in a skillet over low heat. If the meat seems dry, add 2 tablespoons of water while reheating.)

Step 3

To serve: Wrap tortillas in tin foil and warm them in a 200º oven for about 4 minutes. Divide the meat mixture among the 10 tortillas. Place the desired accompaniments in small bowls and let each child fill and fold to create his own custom taco.

Step 4

How kids can help: Pick fillings and set them out in bowls.
