Spanish Ground Beef Dinner

Tonight the chef made hamburgers, with all the fixings, and oven fries. It was a great dinner for a rainy fall day.

Here’s another ground beef recipe that we’ve enjoyed in the past, and would be a quick dinner on a busy day. We could use some of the herbs from our garden that the chef dried in the dehydrator today.

The recipe is adapted from a recipe in Quickies: Ten Quick Ways with Everyday Foods,one of my favourite cookbooks.
