Grandma Hope’s Taco Filling

I am shamelessly harrassing people for recipes. You know when you get in a rut and need something new. So if you have any email them to me. CRAP! There I go again. That’s how I found this recipe…from my friend Nikki. It makes a TON! I actually cut the recipe in half twice and had enough for my family with leftovers. Go ahead and make a whole batch and you can use some and freeze the rest. I was a little skeptical because it had more veggies than I usually see in tacos but it was yummy. Austin asked if we could have it for dinner every night. I also liked it because it’s from Grandma Hope. Not that I know her but I tend to trust grandmas for tried and true recipes.

On a side note if you have never been to Tastespotting or Foodgawker you are missing out. Pages and pages of beautiful, drool worthy food! The first time I browsed their sites I was up until 2AM. I shouldn’t tell you about these sites because you may never come back to my blog again! That’s where I go when I need ideas.

Grandma Hope’s Taco Filling

Ingredients

  • 6 lbs. lean ground beef, browned and drained
  • 2 green peppers, chopped
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 6 potatoes, peeled and grated (Nikki uses a bag of cubed hashbrowns here instead. I used shredded hashbrowns)
  • 6 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 pint ketchup
  • 1- 46 oz. can tomato juice
  • 3 packages taco seasoning (Season to taste...I used more. Nikki used a packet of hot taco seasoning)

Instructions

  1. In a very large pot or electric skillet, brown ground beef and drain off fat. Add peppers, onions, potatoes and carrots. Stir until combined. Add in ketchup, tomato juice & taco seasoning.
  2. Simmer for about 3 hours, or until veggies are tender. Makes enough for a very large crown, or as I prefer- place in tupperware containers and freeze until needed. Perfect for tacos, nachos, taco salads, etc.!

  5. I love how you said you were shamelessly harassing ppl for recipes! I lmbo at that one, :p I do the same! ;) I love cooking and ESPECIALLY if its a mexican food, my husband is what fuels my curiosity of “The Real McCoy” of Mexican food. If I wasn’t married to that adorable, hardworking, and beautiful Mexican husband of mine I wouldn’t have the drive to try and find recipes and food he loves to eat. :)
