DIRECTIONS

  • Tear off a 4-inch strip of aluminum foil, then tear the rectangle in half to have a roughly 4x4 square OR use a snack-size zipper bag.
  • Dump all spices & herbs in a small pile.
  • Fold foil edges up, pressing folds firmly to seal tightly.
  • Store in a cool dark container.
  • AT SERVING TIME: Sprinkle packet contents over browned hamburger, add water.
  • Simmer lightly, cover with lid to allow onions to re-plump.
  • After about 7 minutes, check if water has simmered off and if onions are plumped up. If not, add another tablespoon (or two), and continue plumping.
  • We prefer our taco/enchilada meat a bit juicy, but you may wish to remove the lid and let it dry before serving.
  • USES: tacos, taco salad, burrito, tostada, enchilada, Mexican lasagna.
