Ingredients - ground beef preparation
1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked
Ingredients - quick pico
1 pound beefsteak tomatoes
1/2 onion, diced
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 lime, juiced
pinch of salt and pepper
Ingredients - for serving
corn or flour tortillas, warmed
hard shells or tortilla chips, if desired
sharp white cheddar cheese, freshly grated
Step 1: Heat a skillet over medium heat. With ground beef, I rarely add any oil to the skillet because it tends to be fattier. If needed, you can add 1 teaspoon of olive oil (of your oil of preference). Once the skillet is hot, add the ground beef and break it apart with a wooden spoon.
Step 2: Cook, stirring and breaking apart the beef often until it begins to brown. Add in the cumin, paprika, garlic powder, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Stir well to disperse all the seasonings. Cook until the beef is just browned.
Step 3: I love the seasoned beef like this – it’s a personal preference. If you’d like it saucier, follow the directions below. You can also add in a tablespoon of beef or vegetable stock, or even tomato sauce, to make it saucier.
Step 4: Serve the ground beef in tacos (warm corn or flour tortillas in the oven for a few minutes), on nachos, or in salads. We like to top ours with a quick pico de gallo, fresh cilantro, white cheddar cheese, diced avocado, and pickled onions.
Step 5: If you’d like to add peppers and onions: Heat the skillet over medium heat and add 1 to 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Add in 1 diced onion, 1 diced bell pepper, and a few minced garlic cloves with a pinch of salt. Toss well and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Proceed with browning the beef above!
Step 6: Quick Pico! Toss the tomatoes, onion, cilantro, and lime juice together in a bowl. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
