    Very good taco filling. We used it for soft tacos, and the regular taco shells and both were good. I added 1 t chili powder to give an extra kick. Will make again. Thanks for posting this!

    I am going to give it 5 stars... because it provided me with the basic recipe to make tacos. I didn't even use oregano, but it still tasted great. I also chopped up the tomatoes and cooked it with the beef (although I added that near the end). I also added a little bit of chilli powder to spice it up some. Thanks for sharing this EASY recipe!

    This was tasty and easy and I liked that it wasn't prepackaged taco seasoning. I added a can of pinto beans and took MizzNezz's suggestion of some chili powder and upped the other seasonings a little to compensate for the added ingredients. It really was nice but if you're looking for spice or heat you need to add it. I think the only problem I had was the oregano, I tasted that more than anything and found I wasn't that big on it.
