What's Beef? - Ground Beef Taco Recipe

Saturday, February 20, 2016

I got one question for you, DO YOU KNOW WHAT BEEF IS?

Seriously though, beef IS when you need two gats to go to sleep, but it is also the core of a pretty amazing taco. You'll probably see a lot of beef around here, be prepared,.


  • About 1 Pound of 93% Super Lean Ground Sirloin (Food Handling Gloves if you have them)
Combine these five items: (Green Chile Mix) in a (Small Bowl)
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions, rinsed and dried (Strainer, Kitchen Scissors, Paper Towels, Measuring Cup)
  • 1 4oz can Hatch Green Chiles - Mild (Can Opener, Spoon)
  • 1 generous tablespoon minced garlic (I use the pre-minced jarred kind found in most produce sections) (Measuring Spoon)
  • 1/2 a shallot, chopped (Knife, Kitchen Scissors, or chopper)
  • Frozen Pepper Stir Fry Mix (Usually Comes Mixed with Onions, Red, Yellow, Green Peppers, if you can find a mix of just peppers that would be great)
  • Pick out 1/2 cup of the peppers only (no onions) and place into a (Measuring Cup)
  • Dice the peppers in the measuring cup with your (Kitchen Scissors) -  Let it sit to thaw a bit.
  • Add 1 (Tablespoon) vegetable oil to a (large skillet.)
  • Add the Ground Beef, Break it up a bit,(Spatula) heat to medium high, brown it, stir frequently
  • When its mostly browned, (not a lot of raw bits) Add the Green Chile Mix and the peppers
(Don't drain the meat per the taco packet instructions! fugg dat shi)
  • Stir in 1/3 cup water (measuring cup) and 1 pack of taco seasoning (you can make yours from scratch if you want, I was low on time) (I used Old El Paso Mild)
  • Bring to a boil for a few minutes
  • Reduce, Simmer, Stir, Lower heat
  • Cook until its thicker/most of the juice is absorbed (I cook it at this point between 3-6 until some of the meat is slightly crisp, use your best judgement)
Lastly add some (Salt) (I like Kosher), (Paprika), and (Garlic Powder) to taste and stir it up. - Add Whatever seasonings you like if needed.

All in together now(Everybody shake ya A**... Everybody getting hot in hereeee) ... N 2 Gether Now (Limp Bizkit? & Method Man)  Its like Method Man with Limp Bizkit? Weird... I haven't heard Limp Bizbit since i was like in 6th grade, I'm not a fan, but its a kind of a funny song nevertheless.
  • I used (Green Chile Tortillas) (Found at Sprouts, you can use whatever tortillas you like) (Heat as many as you need)
  • On each tortilla, add some cheese: ( A combination of Shredded Mozzarella, Queso Fresco, Cheddar Jack,  or a shredded Mexican Blend, whatever you like).
  • Add a little (shredded lettuce, optional, i used romaine which i chopped into taco acceptable size myself with my handy kitchen scissors)
  • Add some ground beef mixture.
  • Add more cheese (cause cheese is bae)
  • Add (sour cream - i used light)
  • Add (chopped avocado) (I like to season the chopped avocado with garlic salt and pepper to taste before adding it)
  • Top with Cholula, your favorite hot sauce or salsa if desired.
