Taco with Ground Beef


2 teaspoons dried minced onion

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon cornstarch

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

1/4 teaspoon dried minced garlic

1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

1 pound ground beef

1/2 cup water


Mix minced onion, salt, chili powder, cornstarch, cumin, red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, dried minced garlic, and oregano in a bowl.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Crumble ground beef into the hot skillet. Cook and stir until the beef is completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease.

Return ground beef to heat. Pour seasoning mixture and water over the beef; stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and cook until the moisture absorbs into the meat, about 5 minutes.


Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
