Oven Tacos & Homemade Taco Seasoning

April 04, 2012

I love tacos. I could eat them everyday. Yesterday, I had tacos for lunch, then, for dinner. If possible, chocolate and tacos would be about all my family would consume.  The chocolate they would go along with. The tacos? Mmph..not so much. I know! Craziness. For some reason, they would get sick of them?? Although, my oldest is a taco lover too.  She inhaled these.

After searching for for a new recipe to keep my family from not getting sick of regular tacos, I found these at Lynn's Kitchen Adventures.  To top it off, I found  this lovely recipe over at The Gracious Pantry while digging around on Pinterest.  Homemade seasoning! Yes! It's tastes awesome. 

Give them a try and make taco lovers out of all your loved ones.

{A few notes}..below is the recipe I used for here at our house.  The original recipe is for ground beef and a whole can of regular re fried beans. I cut our beans back, because, not everyone loves them.  About 1 TBSP of taco seasoning is good for about 1 lb of meat. Use more or less depending on your taste preference.
