I know what you’re thinking. What? Revisited? What’s the point? Wasn’t it already good the first time? Obviously not, we’re revisiting it. When I wrote the original taco seasoning post I wasn’t the best blogger and it wasn’t the best recipe. Sorry for being a whore liar. I’m all better now, I’m a total pretty woman.
This taco seasoning reminds me of what my childhood was made of. Straight up ground beef with a packet of McCormick taco seasoning. Add some tomatoes and lettuce on a fried tortilla and I was in heaven. This mix of spices has almost the same flavor with a little more richness to it, it’s more cost effective if you purchase it all in the bulk section, and the sodium level is way less. Way less sodium is sexy.
I would like to also note that this makes way better tacos than those lunchables did when I was in grade school. Am I the only one to have requested those for field trips? TACO MEAT IN A TUBE that you squirted out on weird bread thing then topped with thick shredded cheese. I just don’t even know what to say about that except stop it.
What I can say about this seasoning is that it’s good and can make a pound of turkey into a meal real fast (taco salad puhlease right now). If meat isn’t your thing try a pound of sliced crimini mushrooms for mushroom tacos. Everyone’s down with that. This stuff is like hamburger helper but nothing comes from a box and there’s not a creepy talking hand that’s gonna try to feel you up when you aren’t looking. I’ve seen the way it’s looked at those moms in the commercials.
To make, brown meat or saute mushrooms, add a full small batch or 3T from the large batch with 1/3 c water. Continue to cook until combined and water has evaporated.
