We get that a taco packet is very convenient but the ingredients in a packet are just not worth throwing it into your beautifully browned meat.
The ingredients in a regular taco packet: Spices, Onion, Whey (Milk), Salt, Garlic, Sugar, Potato Starch, And Natural Flavor – YUCK!
We’ll give you a recipe that will have REAL natural flavor.
2 T chili powder
2 t ground cumin
2 t garlic powder
½ t cayenne pepper
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 pound ground beef
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1. Mix together chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and ground black pepper in a small bowl.
2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook ground beef, stirring often, until the meat is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Mix in onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir spice mixture into ground beef mixture and cook until fragrant, 2 to 3 more minutes.
You can make your meat into a taco or taco salad! Enjoy!
