    Why to you brown all your ground beef without seasoning it. Doesn’t it change the flavor to season it after it is cooked?

    • Lisa says:

      Shelli – Our recipes are geared to work for your big cooking day, and browning the ground beef for multiple recipes the night before. There is still plenty of flavor when seasoning after its cooked.

      In my experience as long as the spices get some moisture and cooking time, they will mix well with browned meat.

    Hi I am new to OAMM…The ingredients lists chicken but the recipe says beef….? Also, Could someone clarify this for me… the ingredients call for cooked chicken(I think beef) and chirizo but the recipe doesn’t include directions for cooking the chorizo, and the prep day instructions didn’t include cooking the chorizo…

    • Katie says:

      Hi Alecia! Sorry for the confusion. Ground chicken is the correct ingredient as per the ingredient list and the shopping list. And you are correct, cooking the chorizo should have been on the prep day list and it wasn’t so I have updated that. Hope that helps and if you have more questions, please let me know!
