    KPD's Note:

    This is my basic recipe for a Mexican ground beef mixture. This way everyone can make what they want: DH makes burritos, I make tacos or chimichangas, and DD makes what I call a fiesta bowl! I usually double the recipe so we can use the leftovers for a Nacho Night! If I'm low on time or spices, I'll just throw in a taco packet, no biggie! Please use your judgement on the seasonings: we like it spicy, so I actually use a lot more than written...if you prefer mild, go a little light initially and increase as necessary.

      Made this as written and delicious!! I used it in tacos, tostadas and in Fiesta Salad With Avocado Ranch Dressing#497830 along with topping with Salsa Fresca#262967. So many uses. The couple that came for dinner took the recipe home and were tickled to get it. Next time I am going to add some pinto beans to the mixture and there will be a next time. Thank you for posting. Made for My 3 Chefs October 2013 tag game.
