Ground beef is so delicious and easy to cook with, but sometimes we get caught in the routine of making the same ground beef recipes over and over. Erm, we’re looking at you, tacos. Instead, here are some fantastic recipes that will change up your recipe game and throw your tastebuds for a loop in the best way possible! Tonight, pull out some ground beef and get ready to create your new favorite go-to meal that will please every family member.

1. One Skillet Mexican Beef and Rice

An easy and very filling dish that only takes one skillet to create! Anybody else in favor of minimal dishes? Add some guacamole to take this amazing recipe to the next level, or some fresh local veggies to make it come alive.


2. Mediterranean Meatball Gyros Sandwich

It’s simple, yet so memorable! Instead of opting for the fast food gyro option at the mall or on the street, head home and create it in your own kitchen. Dice up the produce and pair with a homemade tzatziki sauce to wow your friends and family the next time they come for supper.

Rhiannon Ball

Rhiannon loves to cook and bake but has also never said "no" to a takeout burrito (see, she's just like you!). Despite slowly running out of room in her cabinets, she continues to expand her collections of cookbooks and kitchen gadgets and is deeply jealous of people who can just "whip something up" without a recipe. When she's not in the kitchen, you can find her camping and hiking with her husband and rescue dog, Waffles.
