Taco Meat

Servings 4 servings


Taco Meat:

  • 1 lb grass fed ground beef
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/3 cup shredded Mexican cheese
  • Optional:
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tsp tapioca flour or corn starch or 1 tbsp regular flour


Taco Meat:

  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Once it’s hot, add in your ground beef. Break it up with a wooden spoon as it browns.
  2. Once the meat is almost fully browned, add in seasonings. If you like more “saucy” beef, add in a slurry of flour + water and let it simmer on low heat until the liquid dissolved (6-8 minutes).
  3. Remove the beef from the heat and immediately stir in the shredded cheese.
  4. Serve with tortillas, in enchiladas, in my Crunchwrap recipe, the possibilities are endless!
