Chipotle Taco Meat

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Dwynnie

This was modified from a Rachel Ray recipe and was simple and easy for great taco meat when I didn't have any of the Taco Spice packets in the house! I added a can of beans as we were making burritos, but they aren't needed. Enjoy! (Note: Time does not include time to brown meat)

This is so delicious. I've never used the beans, but I have made this with chicken and ground beef and it is our new favorite taco meat recipe! I've also never eaten at chipotle, so maybe my opinion doesn't count? All I know is this is some good taco meat. And I am hard to please.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine chili powder, onion powder, chipotles, garlic, salt, and beer in a small bowl. If you are using beans, use 1 cup beer, less if you are not.
  2. In a skillet over medium heat, pour the spice mixture over the meat (and beans) and cook until the sauce reaches the consistancy you want--approximately 20 minutes.
  3. Serve with tortillas, guacamole, roasted red pepper, tomatoes, salsa, etc.
