Taco Meat

Rating: 4.24 stars
This recipe makes just the taco meat. You have to buy everything else, of course. Make a big batch and use for a multiple of different meals: add to bean burritos for a more hearty and tasty burrito, or add a can of beans (kidney, red, or pinto) and use for Frito® Pie, Navajo tacos, or taco salad.

A change of pace from a French omelet, the Denver omelet is known for its firmer texture and caramelized flavor. It's one of the first foods I've ever learned to cook professionally, as a line cook in high school. Make it a complete lunch or dinner with arugula salad and toasted bread.
