I love this recipe. I cook for my husband, 2 yr old daughter and my father, all of which have completely different tastes. This is a great dish that is easy to make and even easier to adapt to my families taste. I do add cumin for a little extra flavor but other than that we love the texture and moistness.

I thought this recipe was great!!! I have to double the recipe though because I feed 5 people usually with it. I don't double the chili powder because it's a little too spicy for the little ones :-) Plus, we use venison so I do add a little veggie oil to it so it doesn't end up too dry. Absolutely delicious!!!

I used a full pound of meat so I doubled all the ingredients (except for the flour and salt)... I liked the texture of the meat with the addition of the flour... it really allows the meat to crumble into smaller pieces rather than chunks... I thought it was quite salty but that is easily remedied... and would add in some cayenne pepper next time for some kick... Otherwise, it was really easy to throw together and my BF really enjoyed his soft tacos with this meaty filling... Thanks for sharing!!!

I found this recipe about a year ago when I started cooking Sunday supper for our children's church. When I make it, I use 6-8 pounds of meat and always run out. The kids always ask where I bought the tacos. We use warm flour tortillas with cheese and salsa. The adults use it to make taco salad. Thanks for the post.

I usually make taco meat with a taco seasoning packet (where you brown the meat first, then add seasoning and water). I decided to give this recipe a try because my boyfriend doesn't like taco seasoning. I was disappointed... it was extremely bland. I guess I like my tacos a lot spicier. What I did like was the texture of the meat... it was smoother and less chunky. So I'm thinking next time I will follow the cooking instructions for this, but mix taco seasoning into the meat instead. Hopefully that will give me the texture I liked and the spiciness I prefer.

Followed recipe EXACTLY as stated. Why didnt I brown the meat first? I dont know, I know better than that. Anyway this meat had the consistency of dog food. I had Wendy's the night I made this. If you do decide to make this. Do not use flour, use more spices, use more water, and cook longer. This was a disaster. I do NOT recommend this to anyone.

This came in handy in a pinch tonight! I thought I had the lil pouches of taco seasoning. I didn't. I quadrupled the recipe for my family. I browned the ground meat, drained off the fat and then added the seasonings and flour. It turned out wonderfully! Thankyou for coming to our rescue!

Great Stuff! We started off using 1 lb ground beef but I goofed on my chili measurement and used tablespoons instead of teaspoons and so I added another pound of meat and the heat was toned down to eatable. Also note that my ground meat was already cooked from previous mexican cooking and so I added more water, probably about a cup to a cup and half and let simmer. Good combo of spices.
