The Best Taco Meat

Let’s get basic here and talk about taco meat. I totally realize that you all know how to whip up some taco meat for a taco salad or tacos; however, a lot of you ask how I whip up my taco meat? A few extra (yet simple) steps make this taco meat so extra delicious. It’s nothing fancy, but dang, it it sure is good! 

It’s a staple in our home. I always keep ground beef or turkey in my freezer for when I just don’t have time to run to the grocery store so that I can thaw it out and whip this up for dinner any day of the week. I throw it in a bowl with any type of salad fixings, or stuff it in a Siete Foods Grain Free Tortilla for a real taco!

    Good to know! I love the simple additional of the beef broth (I would add just water, but I bet the broth would enhance the flavor) and tomato paste. Gonna try it out for taco Tuesday!
