Good for breakfast, lunch or dinner: See how to make Mexican-Style Beef Sausage

The best part of cooking a big meal is the leftovers -- especially when they're good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Angela Horkan with the Wisconsin Beef Council joins FOX6 WakeUp with an easy recipe.

Mexican-Style Beef Sausage


  • 1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder


Combine all ingredients in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly.

Cook's Tip: For a more mild flavor, use less chipotle chile powder.

Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add sausage mixture; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 1/2-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally.

Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160ºF. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
