This recipe is from Morgan Hanrahan of Olympia, Wash., who competed in the 2007 National Beef Cook-off with her dad, John. We thought this also would be good with ranch dressing in place of the blue cheese.


1pound extra-lean ground beef
1/4cup Buffalo-style barbecue sauce
8 taco shells
1cup thinly sliced lettuce
1/4cup bottled reduced-fat blue cheese dressing
1/3cup shredded carrot
1/3cup chopped celery
2tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Brown ground beef in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until beef is not pink, 8 to 10 minutes, breaking up with a spoon. Pour off drippings. Stir in barbecue sauce. Cook and stir 1 minute until thoroughly heated.
  2. Heat taco shells according to package directions.
  3. Spoon beef mixture into taco shells. Add lettuce; drizzle with dressing. Top with carrot, celery and cilantro.
