By special request from the birthday boy….


This is a very simple meal, that can be mostly prepared in advance. 

Say it with me now, “Start by browning 2 pounds of ground beef or venison”. Very good class! 

We seem to eat a lot of ground beef/venison.  It really is an economic thing.  Right now I have a freezer full of beef that I got for roughly 99 cents a pound.  So, yeah ground beef rocks!

While the meat is browning, in a small bowl mix the following ingredients…

Pretty isn’t it????

Oh, would like to know what to use to make this pretty concoction? No!


Just kidding!

4 tsp. onion powder

2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. chili powder

1 tsp. cornstarch

1 tsp. crused dried red pepper

1 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. dried oregano (or maybe a smidge more :)

Once your meat is browned, add the seasoning mix, and 1 cup of water.

Voila!  Taco meat!

You could stop there, and have some yummy tacos, but why?  Let’s toss in about half a can of mild salsa, shall we?

As yes, that’s much better!

Now, this will sit nicely on the back of the stove on low, or in a crock pot until you are ready to serve it.  When that time comes, warm some tortillas, add your favortie toppings and enjoy!

I was surprised to see that you don’t put cumin in your taco seasoning! Have you ever tried it? It really gives Mexican food that authentic “something.” Try it!

Oh, I have, but we prefer the flavor without.
