My husband brought home this recipe from Yarmouth Junior High School’s family studies cooking program when he taught it one year and it is DELICIOUS! I had to increase all the ingredients to feed a family or group. This is my kids' favourite meal.
- Scramble fry beef and onion together.
- Mix together boiling water and bouillon cubes. Set aside.
- Mix spices together; add to meat mixture. Add bouillon.
- Add tomato sauce; stir all together.
- Simmer 20 minutes or until thick.
This is SOoooo good. I did make a substitution - instead of the water & bouillon cubes and tomato sauce I used a tin of Italian spiced tomatoes. Cut the recipe back to 10 oz of hamburger. It worked and was thoroughly enjoyed. Served in a soft whole wheat tortilla
Great recipe for bulk taco filling for OAMC or just to feed a crowd. I thought this might be too mild for my tastes, so I added a healthy sprinkle of cayenne, and about 1/4 cup of medium heat taco sauce. Next time I would probably use an 8 oz. can of tomato sauce and 1/4 cup taco sauce instead of 1 1/4 cups tomato sauce.
Since my favorite taco seasoning (Ortega) has gone up in price and is hard to find, I have been searching for a recipe and this is the one! I didn't have any bouillon, but used 4 TBS. of brown gravy mix and just a little less tomato sauce. Otherwise this was just a perfect combination of ingredients. Everyone should play Pick A Chef when it comes around 'cuz If it hadn't been for PAC, I probably wouldn't have found this. Thank you for sharing!
