    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4-6

    Yield:

    portions

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 1/2 cup onion, diced
    • 5 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
    • 1 lb ground beef
    • 2 medium tomatoes, seeded and minced
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 teaspoons beef bouillon
    • salt and pepper

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Saute onion in oil in a large skillet over medium low heat until translucent. Add jalapeno and cook about 10 minutes more. Remove onion and peppers and set aside.
    2. 2
      Raise heat to medium and quickly brown ground beef. Drain off fat and return onions and peppers. Add tomatoes, garlic, bouillon, salt and pepper to taste.
    3. 3
      Saute over low heat for 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      This can also be prepared using beef broth rather than the bouillon. You would add it at the same time, just cook until desired consistency.

      This is a great recipe! I have made it half a dozen times and have no complaints at all from the family. I reduce the amount of peppers depending on the heat so everyone can eat it. Also I add a tablespoon of cumin and a tsp of ketchup. Coupled with the beef broth and the tomatoes (roma), it makes a very nice sauce that goes well with rice.

      Pretty good. Could use as a base for other recipes also. I may use leftovers for Chili or maybe enchiladas.
