Sprinkle this mix over ground beef,chicken or beans! It's even great tossed with warm roasted walnuts.
1 pound ground beef
2-3 tablespoons This Mess is Ours' gluten free taco seasoning mix
1/2 cup water
Place the ground beef in a nonstick skillet and cook over medium to medium-high heat. Use a wooden spoon to break up the ground beef into equal-size pieces as it browns. Once there are no pink spots remaining, drain most of the fat from the pan and add 2 tablespoons taco seasoning and the water. Bring to a simmer and cook until the liquid has reduced. For saucier taco meat add an extra 1/4 cup water and cook until the mixture has slightly thickened.
Use approximately 2-3 tablespoons taco seasoning mix per pound of ground meat. If you like milder taco meat use less seasoning blend.
You can also flavor beans, like lentils, with this mixture. About 2 cups of cooked beans will be the equivalent of one pound of ground beef.
If you like onions in your taco meat add 1 finely chopped white onion to the skillet when you are browning the beef.
