Mexican Beef

Mexican Beef created by Lavender Lynn

This is a great way to make meat for tacos, burritos or nachos without having to purchase the taco seasoning!! This is a recipe from Taste of Home, that I changed slightly for our tastes.

    Instead of cornstarch, I use a roux of masa harina. It works in several dishes, from this 1 to chili, beef stew ( chicken, turkey, bison, etc) to shepherd's pie ( with lamb!) & I add more of whatever chiles i have on hand.

    AWESOME!! I've tried other taco seasoning recipes from here and this one is the one for me from now on. Definitely not buying those packets anymore. I didn't have coriander and left out the cornstarch. Made for Everyday's a Holiday Tag Game 2013.

    I made this for tacos and it turned out great. I love making my own taco seasonings and this recipe did not disappoint. I will use it again. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT8.

    We enjoyed the combination of spices used in this recipe. Penzey spices were used exclusively to make this dish. I used their Mexican oregano. Sliced ripe olives was the only optional ingredient that was not used. I made this for Zaar World Tour 8 for the Bistro Babes team.
