Taco Meat Recipe

Growing up, I loved to eat tacos. We would buy the taco kit boxes at the store, my mom would make the meat using the seasoning mix provided, and we would all pick our toppings of choice. I loved how juicy, salty, and flavorful the meat was. Now I choose to avoid those taco seasoning mixes because they are typically full of food colorings and MSG. Here I’ve recreated that same flavor, but with real spices and no additives. Enjoy!
