Taco Potion #19
According to Alton Brown, "This mixture of spices and thickeners will turn ground meat into a flavor fiesta … and yes, I just said “flavor fiesta.” Why number 19? Because there were 18 formulas before that didn’t quite reach my “fiesta” standards. Although I use this predominantly on beef, it works just as well with ground turkey."
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Combine the ingredients in a container and shake well.
Taco mix #19 as above. 2 TBSP peanut oil in skillet. Medium chopped onion 3-4 minutes. Then add two cloves fresh chopped garlic, and 1# ground SIRLOIN. Heat 3-5 minutes until meat is browned. Add entire dose of taco mix #19 and mix well. Add 2/3 cup beef broth, bring to a simmer. Simmer 2-3 minutes.
