Keep packages of this Mexican-seasoned ground beef on hand in the freezer as a starter for your favorite recipes that call for ground beef with taco seasoning.

Ingredients

3
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
2
packages (1 oz each) Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix

Directions

  • 1 In 5-quart Dutch oven or 12-inch skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until thoroughly cooked; drain.
  • 2 Reduce heat to medium. Stir in taco seasoning mix. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until flavors are blended. Cool 5 minutes.
  • 3 Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil. Spoon beef onto foil, breaking apart as necessary. Freeze about 1 hour, stirring once, until firm.
  • 4 Divide mixture into quart-sized resealable freezer plastic bags with about 2 cups in each. (One lb ground beef yields about 2 cups, cooked and drained.) Seal bags; label. Freeze up to 2 months.
