Basic Mexican Beef or Chicken

  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1/4 C ketchup
  • 1/3 C water
  • 2 t chili powder
  • 1 t ground cumin
  • 1 t onion powder
  • 1 t garlic powder

Brown ground beef over medium heat.  While draining and rinsing the beef mixture, mix the remaining ingredients in the same skillet. Add the rinsed beef mixture. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until most of the water evaporates.

Serve with the flour tortillas, or in a taco salad.¬† I substitute chicken strips for the ground beef, and it’s excellent!
