Mexican Style Ground Beef
Carne Molida – Estilo Mexicano
by James Belardo

Our Carne Molida (Mexican-Style Ground Beef) is fairly versatile, it can be used in several different kinds of ways. You can serve it as a topping for rice, roasted potatoes, or as a filling for tacos and burritos. You can use it topped with gooey cheese like Manchengo (don’t forget to pop it in the oven and melt the cheese before serving)!

Ingredients
2 lbs ground beef (you can also use veal, pork or a mix)
1/8-1/4 lb. pork belly, pancetta or bacon, chopped
1-2 cloves garlic, diced
1 onion, diced
1-2 jalapeno peppers, diced
1 poblamo pepper, diced
1 small chipotle, chopped
