“Secret Recipe” Taco Filling

Dinner, Freezer Meal

 

Who knew there was more than one way to make taco meat.  All growing up and in my own cooking years, taco meat is simply ground beef (sometimes with onion) and the packet of taco seasoning.  And it was good….but it was just taco meat.  THIS is “secret recipe” quality.  Truly, your friends will want to know what makes it SO GOOD!

Here is your team line up of ingredients.  I didn’t get a picture of the beef.

“Secret Recipe” Taco Filling

3 lb ground beef (yes, 3 lbs….trust me.  You will want to freeze this to have on hand)

1/4 cup dried minced onion (or 1/2 cup fresh minced onion)

2 cups water

3/4 cup taco seasoning (a packet is about 1/4c)

2 tsp ground cumin

10 oz diced green chilies (I use mild so they don’t add any spice, just a good flavor)

1. Brown ground beef and onion until no longer pink.  Drain and return to skillet.

2. Stir in water, taco seasoning, cumin, and green chilies.  Let simmer 10 minutes.  Serve with all of your favorite taco fixings in a tortilla or over a bed of lettuce.  Toss the leftovers in taco soup or in the freezer for a quick meal to have on hand.

Enjoy!
