Green Sauce and Taco Meat

Boy, thats a lame title, but my creativity juices weren’t flowing for the title as much as for the dish.  This is the only taco meat recipe I ever use.  It has a clean taste and isn’t greasy or heavy.  It doesn’t use many ingredients and doesn’t have all the sodium and artificial flavorings you’d normally have with using regular taco seasoning.  This green sauce is spicy and tangy and goes great with anything.  Its really cheap and incredibly simple and will not disappoint your hungry quests.  These two things is all you need to make a successful taco night!

Taco Meat Ingredients:

  • ground beef/turkey/ whatever meat you want
  • ketchup
  • cumin and chili powder
  • spanish olives
  • lime juice (if you have it)

How to:

  1. begin by slicing onion and garlic and sautéing in olive oil in a skillet
  2. once the onions are translucent and the mix smells flavorful add in the meat
  3. add a large squirt of ketchup and stir
