I made it exactly as written - and it was a success! My husband said, "No more mixes!" I love the fact that you make a big batch and freeze it. It is so convenient on a busy day to have this much of dinner already made.

Great recipe to keep on hand in the freezer. Easy and uses staple pantry items, but you can to it to make it perfect for your family! It's a keeper.

This is a great starting-point taco or nacho meat recipe. From here, I might go in a million directions. Some I've tried are: Add finely chopped vegetables like chiles, carrots, tomatoes or garlic. Replace some or all of the meat with chopped eggplant, cooked black beans, or a meat substitute. Add a handful of chopped fresh green onions and cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice, just before serving.

Easy to make. This time when I made this I subsisted Bob's Red Mil TVP for ground beef. Works with ground turkey too.

I added fresh cilantro to this and my family still prefered the packaged seasoning over this...
