Beef & Green Chili Tacos

Photo by: Joseph De Leo

Tacos are great to serve to a crowd of hungry skiers. They’re fast, fresh, and satisfying after an active day. The filling may be prepared well ahead of time, and your guests can customize their tacos with an array of readily available ingredients.

Yield: Serves 8 to 10


  • 2 tablespoons corn oil
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 cups finely diced red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon finely diced jalapeno pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon hot paprika
  • 3 tablespoons canned green chiles
  • 2 cups pureed plum tomatoes
  • 1 cup dark beer
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • About 20 hard taco shells


  • Grated cheddar cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Chopped red onions
  • Chopped jalapenos or other chiles
  • Chopped scallions
  • Chopped bell peppers
  • Chopped lettuce
  • Diced avocados or guacamole
  • Chopped fresh cilantro
  • Parsley
  • and chives


1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and saute over medium-high heat. Crumble the meat and cook just until it is no longer pink. Transfer the meat to a strainer and strain well.

2. Wipe out the skillet and add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the onion and garlic and saute for 2 minutes. Add the jalapeno pepper and saute for 1 minute. Add the chili powder, cumin, and paprika and cook, stirring, until the spices are well blended into the onion mixture, about 2 minutes. Add the drained meat, chiles, tomatoes, beer, and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until the, sauce has thickened. (The taco filling may be prepared up to this point and will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month. Bring to room temperature before final cooking.)

3. Serve warm with accompaniments.
