      Oh my, this turned out to be the best taco meat ever! Yes, brown the meat first. if you don't and mix the spices and flour into the meat before hand, it is hard to know when the meat is done cooking. Also, I would cut back by 1/2 on the flour and I added Worcestershire Sauce because I love that in my taco meat. Make a bunch cuz it is even better on day 2! I will be visiting my daughter in law this summer and, as tacos are my sons favorite meal, I will be taking a jar of the mix as a gift.

      We love this taco meat! I triple the recipe and use ground turkey. Also, I cook the meat first, drain off the fat, then add the seasonings. I've made it as written before and having the fat in there was just a bit to gross for me. Also unhealthy. I love the combination of the spices, though! Thanks for posting!
