    Melanie2590's Note:

    I loathe store bought taco seasoning. The flavor of it is so overpowering that you can hardly taste anything else on your taco! I found this recipe and adapted it a bit to suit my own tastes. I'm posting it on here mostly to be able to find it whenever I want to make it again. **NOTE: sometimes i substitute 1 tsp of store-bought taco seasoning in place of 1 tsp chili powder. you can't pick the flavor of the store-bought stuff out and it helps bring the flavors together a bit**

      This recipe is good but it does not taste anything like restaurant style tacos at all. <br/><br/>It tastes more like the taco seasoning mix you would buy in the store. <br/><br/>I used a real onion instead of the onion powder, chopped it finely, and fried it before adding it to the meat. I also cut back half on the chili powder and cumin and doubled up on the tomato paste. It came out less overwhelming with all the spices and it was nice.
