lean ground beef
1 (1.25 ounce) package
taco seasoning mix
I planned on serving this over rice for my teenage son. He ended up bringing in 4 of his friends who also wanted to eat...as teenage boys often do ( chuckle ). They ate every last bit of it and wanted more. I did change a little - I added a 1/4 cup of ketchup, a 1/2 cup of salsa and some garlic powder to it. It was REALLY very good.
Average recipe. Easy to make, but the pre-mixed taco seasoning has loads of salt. I would suggest making your own spice mixture and using that instead.
I do not even know what to say about this recipe other than YUCK! Are they tacos or meatloaf. I had to give it a one star because they will not let you submit it, but it does not even deserve that.
As simple as it is to make great taco meat from scratch (and far less salty and more tasty) with 6 ozs. of tomato paste, 1 can of Ro-Tel tomatoes (undrained), 2 tsp. cumin, salt, 2 tsp. chili powder, and 1/2 tsp black pepper, this take on taco meat isn't something I'd ever use again...and certainly not something I'd serve to adults.
This recipe was really good. The only change I made was to decrease the ketchup to 1/4 cup and add 1/4 cup salsa instead.
forget the katchup, use salsa instead its amazing!!
My family Loved this recipe! I only made a few changes... I doubled the recipe (to feed 3 teens and a hubby); I added 3/4 cup salsa (Hell on the Red brand) and 1/4 cup ketchup and a dash of garlic powder. This we rolled up into soft tortillas with some fresh chopped tomatoes, shredded green leaf lettuce, and sour cream. Great for a quick night's supper when everyone's going to soccer practice, football, band, etc.
Simple and better tasting than just adding a package of taco seaoning. Vadie
