Prepare the Ingredients:

  • Dice half of an onion.

Season the Meat:

  • In a large bowl, combine the ground beef with cumin, 2 tablespoons of chili powder, 1.5 tablespoons of smoked paprika, minced garlic, 1.5 teaspoons of salt, and pepper. Mix the ingredients until the spices are evenly distributed throughout the meat.


  • Heat a skillet or pan over medium heat. You can add a bit of oil if needed.

  • Add the diced onion to the pan and cook for a few minutes until it starts to soften.

  • Add the seasoned ground beef to the pan with the partially cooked onion. Cook until the beef is browned and fully cooked, breaking it apart with a spatula as it cooks. This usually takes about 5-7 minutes.

Add Beef Broth:

  • Pour in the beef broth to the pan, stirring to combine. Allow the meat to simmer for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, or until the liquid is mostly absorbed.

Adjust Seasoning:

  • Taste the taco meat and adjust the seasoning if necessary. You can add more salt, pepper, or other spices according to your preference.

  • Remove Excess Oil (Tip):

  • Before serving, you can use paper towels or coffee filters to blot and remove any excess oil from the taco meat. This step helps reduce the overall oil content and makes the meat less greasy.


  • Once the taco meat is cooked, seasoned, and excess oil is removed, it's ready to be served. Spoon it into taco shells or tortillas and add your favorite toppings such as lettuce, cheese, salsa, and guacamole.
