You'll Need

  • 2 lbs ground beef or turkey
  • 2 packets of taco seasoning (or use my taco seasoning recipe below)
  • Soft and/or hard taco shells

Add In's - these can be anything you like but here are my favorite's !

  • Monetary Jack cheese
  • Avocado
  • Diced red onion
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Cilantro
  • Salsa
  • Sour Cream
  • Black beans
  • Refried beans
  • Jalapenos
Set up your bar!

Place your cooked meat in a large serving bowl and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.  Arrange small bowls of your add ins around the bowl of meat.  Warm soft tortillas in the microwave and keep warm by wrapping in foil and and a dish cloth.  

Serve with chips and salsa and enjoy!

Taco Seasoning:
I make this in bulk and store in an airtight container.  For me, this beats any package taco seasoning....all the flavor without all the sodium.

1/4 cup chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp paprika
2 tbl ground cumin
1 tbl salt
1 tbl pepper

Add in about 1/8 of a cup per pound of meat depending on desired flavor, add more if you like a more intesnse taco flavor!
