Hunk Of Meat Monday-Zweber Farm Taco Night

I usually try to plan all our meals at least a week in advance, but there is always one night that something doesn’t go as planned and I need a quick, healthy meal. My go to meal is tacos. I usually have plenty of items around to use as toppings and of course ground beef is never in short supply around here (if you need to order, give us a call). I have started making my own taco seasoning to cut the salt and others “extras” I don’t want to be feeding my family.

Emily’s Taco Seasoning: You can adjust all these ingredients to your family’s taste.

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

Mix all the ingredients together and store in an airtight container. This recipe will be enough for 2 lbs of taco meat.

Brown 1-2 lbs Zweber Farms ground beef

Add, 3 tablespoons and 2/3 cup water to each 1 lbs of beef. Simmer 5-7 minutes

Assemble your toppings of choice (didn’t have any tomatoes last night)

We like to saute green peppers in butter

Serve and enjoy with a large glass of Organic Valley milk.  Our kids love making their own tacos and will even add veggie toppings they don’t normally eat. Our two year old likes to eat a nacho instead of a soft shell taco because it is easier for him to handle.

Side note: This is the last day to vote for Tim in the Carhartt Tough Contest. Vote now and often before midnight.

  1. Love Taco night. I do the same thing with my kids…create nachos. It is hard to make the taco to meet the mouth!
