This is my husband's absolute favorite food, so they aren't just tacos - they are MMM Tacos! I decided to try my hand at making them from scratch instead using a mix to add to the beef. They made the house smell just as good, and although they took longer, I felt like it was a much healthier alternative.
1 lb. Ground Beef or Ground Turkey
1 Tbsp. Chili Powder
1 Tbsp. Paprika
1/2 tsp. Cumin
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder or 1 clove
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
1/2 diced small Onion
Toppings for Tacos (Cheese, Salsa, Sour Cream, etc.)
In sauce pan, add ground beef and all spices, and enough water to cover meat. Bring mixture to a boil. Simmer on low heat for about an hour.
Add onion and continue cooking 20-30 minutes, or until onions are cooked.
Heat taco shells in oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. (I like to put cheese inside the shells and heat until the cheese has melted.)
Spoon 2 tablespoons (ish) into each taco shell, and garnish with whatever toppings you want.
