Blueberry Beef Tacos

The Sneaky Chef


  • 1 Tablespoon  extra-virgin olive oil
  • onion, finely minced
  • 1 Pound  lean ground beef
  • 1/4 Teaspoon  salt
  •   Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 Cup  Sneaky Chef Purple Purée
  • 3/4 Cups  mild salsa
  • 1/4 Cup  tomato paste
  • 12  hard taco shells
  •   Toppings, such as shredded lettuce, grated low-fat Cheddar cheese, chopped fresh tomatoes, and low-fat sour cream

These tacos are deliberately mild so they will appeal to a wide variety of palates. If your kids like the taste of packaged taco seasoning or taco sauce, you can simply add it to this recipe. 


Heat oil in a deep skillet over medium heat. Cook the onions until they are slightly translucent and then add the beef (or turkey), stirring to break it up, cooking about 5 minutes until meat is no longer red. Add the salt, a few grinds of pepper, Purple Purée, salsa, and tomato paste and mix well until heated through and the colors blend into a brown mixture, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.

Spoon about ¼ cup filling into each taco shell. Add toppings as desired.
