This will be the best and easiest Ground Taco Meat you will ever make! It will easily become an easy go-to quick protein you’ll have for meal prep or those nights you need a quick meal.
Ground Taco Meat is definitely one of my quick and easy proteins to have on deck. You can make a huge batch, portion out what you need, and freeze the rest for later use.
However, whenever I reheated ground taco meat, I found that it was dry and almost inedible. If you know me, you know I hate wasting food. So I knew I had to add a little umph to my taco meat so it’s just as good reheat as fresh.
With just a few added ingredients, you’ll have the best taco meat ever! My two [not so] secret ingredients: tomato paste and beef broth! They provide so much added flavor but also help keep your ground meet luscious and super juicy. Seriously, it makes a huge difference!
Since the beef broth adds moisture to the ground meat, it’ll will still be moist when you reheat it. No more dry crumbly ground meat, friends!
What’s great about this ground taco meat is that you can use it for so many other things other than tacos. Here are a few of my favorite recipes you find on my blog that you could use it in:
The possibilities are endless! Also, you don’t have to use ground beef. You can use any kind of ground protein you want. You can even change up the type of broth you use as well. Make this recipe your own!
