Geren's Kick-in-the-Ass Taco Meat Recipe

On occasion, I cook. On rare occasions, I write about it.

Tonight, we had some ground beef that wanted cooking, so I cooked it into taco meat. Here's what I did.

  1. Brown 1lb of lean ground beef in a skillet with a couple teaspoons of oil to reduce stickage. Chop it up small while you're doing it. I use a plastic pancake turner to break up the beef while it's browning.
  2. While the meat is still simmering
  3. Drain off any fat and oil, and then put the meat back in the pan.
  4. Dump in an 8oz can of tomato sauce and mix it in to the meat.
  5. Dump in a packet of McCormick Original Taco Seasoning and mix it into the meat. Don't bother with the directions on the packet. Just dump it on in there.
  6. Squish most of the liquid out of half of a small jar of mild salsa (about 8oz) and mix the chunky bits in with the meat.
  7. Let the whole thing simmer about 10-15 minutes, stirring regularly.

Make tacos and eat. This stuff is good!
