MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 21, 2012

Don't let the long list of ingredients fool you--this recipe is a time saver. The recipe is such a large one that, unless you are feeding a large crowd, you will have plenty to freeze. Divide into 1/4ths or 1/3ds and any time you want tacos or need taco meat for a recipe, a batch of this can be thawed and used. I have made this recipe for years and my family much prefers this to the powdered, shake out of an envelope taco meat.
