1/3 Photos of Tacos from Scratch (Way Better Than a Packet and Just As Easy!)
Those "taco seasoning" packets are usually so high in sodium and contain all kinds of unecessary junk. Give this one a try. You can adjust the seasoning to your liking, add onions when you brown the beef or not, whatever you like. I like to add fresh jalapenos when I add the sauce. Consider this a base recipe. Enjoy!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1In a saute pan (I prefer non-stick but this isn't crucial), brown ground beef.
- 2While beef is browning, combine the remainder of ingredients in a small bowl.
- 3Drain beef. Return to pan. Add the sauce. Stir, and add some water if desired (I add maybe 4-8 oz.). Simmer uncovered until meat reaches desired consistency.
- 4Serve on heated taco shells with cheese, sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, olives, and hot sauce or however you prefer to use seasoned taco meat.
