Finding a good taco filling recipe can often be difficult. If you have been searching for a good recipe, the search has come to an end. After trying this you'll never use another store-bought seasoning mix again. One thing I really enjoy about this recipe is that it isn’t overloaded with seasonings like most taco fillings. This recipe uses ingredients such as diced tomatoes, onion, garlic and various seasonings to create a near perfect blend. This seasoning can be used with either ground beef or ground turkey. Top these tacos with guacamole, shredded cheese, or whatever you like. Enjoy with a Margarita!


3 lbs ground beef (or ground turkey or chicken)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large yellow onion (chopped)
3 cloves (minced)
3 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons oregano
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 can diced tomatoes; 14.5 oz.
salt and pepper (to taste)
¼ cup cornmeal

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



Step 1: In a large skillet over medium-high heat add oil. Add onion and sauté until soft (about 5 minutes). Add garlic, chili powder, oregano, and cumin. Stir and sauté for 1 minute.

Step 2: Add ground beef and cook stirring often until it loses its raw color. Break ground beef up with a spatula into small chunks while cooking. Stir in tomatoes, and simmer for 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper. Stir in cornmeal and cook stirring constantly until the mixture has become thick.
