Instead of using prepackaged taco mix that you add to beef try this…you’ll love it!!!
Once prepared, this can be used for tacos, dips or anything you’d like!
2 lbs of Ground Beef
1 tsp Salt
2 T Chili Powder
2 T Paprika
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp of Garlic Powder or 2 cloves fresh garlic
½ Diced Bell Pepper
½ Diced Medium Onion
12 corn tortillas (for tacos)
In a 2 quart saucepan add ground beef, salt, chili powder, garlic, cumin, paprika, enough water to cover meat.
Bring to a boil. Simmer over medium low heat about 1 hour. Use a potato masher to break up meat, every 15 minutes or so. Then add ½ medium chopped onion and peppers. Continue cooking ½ hour.
You can stop here or go the extra mile!
Remove from stove pour into strainer to remove grease. We do want to keep liquid!
Remove grease from the strained liquid.
TIP: Place in freezer to help separate.
Remove grease from liquid and place in a small pan and bring to boil. Dissolve 1 teaspoon of cornstarch in ¼ cup of cold water add to liquid, simmer 5 minutes.
Fold into meat for a tasty moist taco, grease free!
Serve tacos with shredded lettuce, cheese, chopped tomatoes, etc.
