4 LB ground beef
2 cups pureed vegetables (butternut squash, white sweet potatoes or canned pumpkin)
1 cup tomato sauce (or pureed fresh or frozen tomatoes)
1/2 cup plus 2 TBSP Taco seasoning
Season ground beef generously with taco seasoning, then cook over medium heat in a large sauté pan. Pour cooked ground beef into a colander in the sink, and allow all fat to drain. Briefly chop in food processor, then return beef to sauté pan. Add 1-2 cups of pureed vegetables and tomato sauce. Cook until heated thoroughly. Serve immediately or divide meat into 2 cup portions and freeze for later use.
The pureed vegetables give the meat a moist texture that blends well with the seasonings. This has become a family favorite, my husband loves it and we can’t imagine serving tacos, nachos or burritos without it. I cook a large batch of this once a month and keep it in the freezer for quick meals.
