Taco Meat

Taco Meat

This is a wonderful base recipe to make anything from tacos to burritos to taco salad to nachos.  It’s flavorful, and you can control the level of spice and seasoning to suit your own tastes.


1 lb of ground meat (beef, turkey, venison)
1 small onion
1 can diced green chillies
1 tsp ground cumin
½ tsp chili powder
½ tsp Kosher or sea salt
¼ tsp fresh ground black pepper


frying pan
measuring spoons
wooden spoon
sharp knife and cutting board or onion dicer


Dice onion.


Put ground meat and onion in frying pan.

Cook over medium heat until the meat is browned and cooked through.

Drain.  Do not drain your meat in your sink.  I drain mine into a heavy ceramic bowl and allow it to cool before putting it in the garbage can.

Add the diced green chilies and the spices.

Cook and stir until thoroughly heated.


4-6 servings, depending on how you use it.

If desired, finely chop some Anneheim chilies or some jalepeno peppers and add them with the onion.
