Perfectly Seasoned Taco Meat

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Debber

Never mind buying those little EXPENSIVE packets of taco seasonings ever again. You have all the herbs on your shelf (I hope!) to make PERFECTLY seasoned taco meat every time!

I will never buy taco seasoning again. I do add at least a tsp of cummin as well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute meat (and onion if using fresh); drain fat if necessary; turn heat to low.
  2. Sprinkle dried onion, herbs and seasonings over the meat; stir to mix well.
  3. Add water; stirring again.
  4. Cover and simmer on low for 10-15 minutes, until most of the water has been absorbed; remove lid and let dry; remove from heat.
  5. USES: Tacos, burritoes, enchiladas, taco salad, sloppy taco joes, nachoes, taco dip.
  6. BRILLIANT IDEA: Pour dried onion flakes, seasonings and herbs into a pile on a small square of foil. Close tightly, store in a zippered plastic baggie. Use as you would a store-bought packet!
