    This was good! I made a few changes, of course! I used 1 tsp chili powder and 2 tsp taco seasoning mix, plus a whole large onion and no peppers (personal taste on that one). Next time, I will cook the onions first, as the meat was chewy and overdone by the time the onions were caramelized. Note: Brown the meat in a LARGE pan or do in 2 batches!
