Mexican Restaurant Style Ground Beef

Do you love the taste of the ground beef in the tacos and burritos at your favorite Mexican food restaurant? Here is a method to make it at home for when you just are not in the mood for going out.

Authentic Taco Meat

2lbs. Ground Beef
1 tsp salt
2 tblsps chili powder
1 tsp cumin
2 tblsps paprika
1 tsp garlic
Black pepper to taste (I would use up to 2 tblsps)
1 small onion finely diced (optional)

Place the raw ground beef in a large skillet or sauce pan. Cover with water and add seasonings. Bring the meat to a boil, and then turn down to a simmer over medium low heat. Cover and simmer for one hour. Break up the ground beef as it simmers and add water when needed. After it simmers for an hour, add the finely diced onion and let simmer for another hour.

Now you have that perfect taco meat that can be used for all kinds of dishes. I would use it in enchiladas, burritos and of course tacos. You can make large batches of this and freeze it for an easy and quick mid week meal. Enjoy!
