I like to ground my own beef. Just take slightly frozen beef cubes and process in a food blender till ground! It works like a charm.Then you know what is in your ground beef.

This is fantastic! The kids loved it. I used ground turkey and one chipotle (threw the chile, salsa, and turkey into food processor to blend). Thanks for sharing!
