Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add ground beef; cook 8–10 minutes, breaking into small crumbles and stirring occasionally. **
Remove from skillet with slotted spoon; pour off drippings, as necessary. Return to skillet; stir in hot pepper sauce. Cook and stir 1 minute or until heated through. Meanwhile, heat taco shells according to package directions.
Evenly spoon beef mixture into taco shells.
Add lettuce, drizzle with dressing. Top evenly with carrot, celery, and cilantro. Garnish with carrot and celery sticks or cilantro sprigs, if desired.
Cook's Tips: - One quarter cup prepared ranch dressing combined with 2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese may be substituted for blue cheese dressing.
**Important: for all ground beef recipes: cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
