Chile Beef Taco Filling
This is my favorite taco meat. If you like mild chile flavors, you may wish to add the mild chile first and determine the need for the hot.
Yield: enough for 8 tacos
1 pound extra-lean ground beef
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tablespoons ground mild chile
1 Tablespoon ground hot chile
1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar or cider vinegar
¼ teaspoon dried Mexican oregano
½ teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1. Cook ground beef in a large skillet, stirring to break up meat, until browned.
2. Drain off any fat, then add the seasonings.
3. Cook, stirring, to combine ingredients and blend the flavors. Serve hot.
