    IceDown's Note:

    I like flavor and hate packages. This is a made from scratch taco mix with some other ingredients thrown in to add a lot more flavor. I personally love cast iron, so if you got one, this is a good recipe for it. I started with a generic taco seasoning recipe I acquired at some point and added my own little spin. The seasoning mix (chili powder, paprika, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper) will make about 1/2 cup of the mix. You will only need 7 teaspoons of this for the recipe, but there was no easy way of splitting the mix down and not getting the ratios screwed up. Store the remaining mix in an air tight container in a dark, cool place.

      I am one of those people that would put bacon in brownies if it tasted good. But I've never once considered putting it in tacos?! This recipe is nothing short of genius! My family went crazy for them. We loved the spice mix & think it could even go a little hotter but it's definitely not needed. Also, since the directions don't mention the salt & pepper I forgot to add them until the end so I added both to taste. These were, by far, the most enjoyed tacos we've had in a long time. I am thrilled to have found this recipe & will be keeping the mix on hand & I've always got lots of bacon. :) Made & enjoyed for Spring 2009 Pick A Chef Orphanage.
