    Dissie's Note:

    I stopped buying those seasoning packets. This is so easy to make and I bet you have all the ingredients on hand. I usually double or triple the recipe to have on hand for quicker meals. Store tightly covered in a plastic container. Recipe makes enough for 1 pound of seasoned hamburger.

      combine ingredients and add to 1 pound of browned and drained ground beef or cooked diced chicken and stir in water slowly to desired consistency. You want it a little soupy to start with. Simmer 5 minutes. Enjoy! I sometimes add in one tsp of onion flakes in while simmering.

      This is a really great recipe! I think this could benefit from adding a bit of flour or corn starch so that the water will thicken up and be more of a sauce consistency rather than remaining so liquidy. But other than that this is definitely my new go-to recipe for taco night - the flavor is just right. Could be too hot for some (I know my niece does not like spicy things, when she visits I'll cut back on the cayenne to 1/8 teaspoon) but it's just right for me personally as I love spicy foods. Thanks for sharing! =)

      I used this today to make chicken quesadillas for lunch. It was good but I think next time I'll add more "heat" to it with more chili powder or cayenne pepper. It was at the perfect spicy level for my son though.
