Mexican Style Ground Beef
Today I'm sharing one of my favorite quick and easy recipes-- Mexican Style Ground Beef. It's the recipe I reach for most often when we're making ground beef tacos or burritos. It's full of flavor, saucy, and not much harder than reaching for the taco seasoning.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 6 servings
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 10 ounces green enchilada sauce
- 2 tablespoons minced dried onion
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- Salt to taste
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and brown and crumble ground beef until no longer pink. Drain excess fat.
Return meat to pan and add remaining ingredients, stirring to combine. Let simmer for 5-6 minutes over medium-high heat or until most of the liquid is absorbed and it’s the consistency you like—for instance, I like my taco meat a bit drier than I do for making nachos or enchiladas with.
