Tacos from Scratch (Way Better Than a Packet and Just As Easy!)

15 mins (prep 5, cooking 10)

Those "taco seasoning" packets are usually so high in sodium and contain all kinds of unecessary junk. Give this one a try. You can adjust the seasoning to your liking, add onions when you brown the beef or not, whatever you like. I like to add fresh jalapenos when I add the sauce. Consider this a base recipe. Enjoy!
