Seasoning For Tacos

Seasoning For Tacos

"Ground beef tacos and taco salads are nicely enhanced by the mixture that Sue Gronholz uses in place of store-bought taco seasoning. 'It's so easy to mix up a batch and keep it in the pantry,' writes the Beaver Dam, Wisconsin cook. 'It's convenient and saves money, too.'"

This tasted similar to a generic brand I usually buy. I went to make a quick meal of tacos and realized I had shells but no seasoning. So pack up three children and run to the store or improvi...
