If you’re like me, Eva Bee, you crave Tacos: All. The. Time. This is the perfect recipe to taco-ify your meals. Think of this recipe for taco hash as a sandwich filling to switch up your sloppy joes, top this on rice and beans, add this to scrambled eggs, or fill taco shells with it!

The Ingredients For Taco Hash

Simple ingredients are thrown together in a large skillet or wok to put this together. The spices give you a Tex-Mex kind of flavour and the veggies around it out and create their own sauce for the lean ground beef.

  • olive oil (or other cooking oil)
  • onion
  • lean ground beef
  • cumin
  • paprika
  • salt
  • spinach
  • tomato
  • peppers
  • cilantro
  • lime juice

Cooking the Beef

Your taco hash starts off with a slight caramelization of onions before you add the beef. The beef is browned in the skillet. This is a good opportunity to cook out all of the liquid in the beef before you add the rest of the ingredients or else the finished result will be soggy. A wide skillet or wok is best for this! cooking the taco hash beef

Adding the Spices

After the beef is browned and all of the liquid has evaporated, this is where you add the ground spices. I also like to save and use cilantro stems. They are chock full of flavour but they need a little extra time to cook down. Make sure to cut them small! adding spices to the taco hash beef

Adding The Vegetables to Add Flavor to This Taco Hash

First, add the spinach to the beef mixture until they are wilted. After about 5 minutes, add the tomato and peppers. You can cook this down longer if you want a more homogenous mixture. I like cooking them for just 3 more minutes so that the vegetables stay a little fresher and crunchy. Freshen up the mixture with the cilantro leaves and lime juice just before serving and enjoy! Veggies add so much flavor!
