- Next, add the ground beef to the pan and cook over medium-high heat. Mix in 1/2 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, onion powder & cumin. Cook for 6-10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes to allow the meat to brown.
- Taste the ground beef and add more spices as needed.
- Transfer the ground beef to a bowl and return the pan to the stove over low heat.
