Ground beef, especially red meat, has become expensive, making grocery shopping challenging. To make it more affordable, cook ground beef with diced peppers and onions to stretch it further. Use any variety of peppers to prevent food waste and save on costs. Bell peppers and white/yellow onions work best. Enhance the mixture with Worcestershire sauce or beef bouillon powder for more flavor. You can cook the vegetables with the beef or separately. Use the mixture in various dishes like taco salad, burrito bowls, stuffed peppers skillet, meatballs, burger patties, or shepherd's pie.
