    Who doesn't like some version of a taco, there are so many. This is one of my family’s favorites, as long as they get to pick their own toppings.

      I used a slightly modified version of these seasonings: 2 tbsp chili powder, 1 tbsp cumin, 2 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp cayenne, and it turned out great. I also just used a whole onion, and no pepper. This is way better than the pre-packaged stuff... I'll be making it again and again!

      Very tasty taco filling. we usually just use a seasoning packet but I didn't have one so I tried this tonight. It was easy to prepare but did take longer to cook but well worth it. My very picky four year old ate 2 tacos tonight. Thanks for a great recipe.
