Ground Beef Taco Meat

Take your Taco Tuesday to a whole nutha level!!!  A few major tips to making some insane tacos: #1 start with some grass-fed ground beef (quality does matter here) #2 use this taco meat recipe #3 use lettuce wraps instead of tortillas #4 tons of yummy toppings (we recomend skipping the cheese).  

You can also use this recipe on a salad (aka taco salad), over fired eggs, on roasted sweet potatoes, in a frittata and pretty much on most other things (that you eat of course).
