Mexican Ground Beef
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
This simple recipe is flavorful and delicious without a specialty seasoning packet (which is often filled with unsavory ingredients).
  • 1 pound of ground beef, grassfed beef preferable
  • 3 medium garlic cloves, finely minced or put through a garlic press
  • 1 teaspoon each ground cumin and dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon unrefined salt
  • 1 lime
  1. In a large pan, over medium-high heat, cook the beef, garlic, cumin and oregano, stirring frequently, until cooked (the meat will no longer be pink). If using grassfed beef, it often will not have much fat drippings, but if it does, drain.
  2. Salt, and sprinkle the juice of half the lime. Taste-test, and adjust with more salt and lime juice, as needed.
