We used the spices in homemade taco seasoning (cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, paprika, red pepper flakes black pepper), adjust to your taste. We also used 1/2 jar of medium salsa. The red pepper flakes give it a kick! Yummy!

My family loves tacos! These were perfect for a weeknight dinner and the best part is if you don't have taco shells it doesn't matter. Crushed up chips for me our a must on this dish. Great Recipe.

My picky family loved this! I doubled the recipe to feed everyone. Next time I think I'm going to add some corn.

This was a quick and easy weeknight meal. I doubled the recipe for my family and used a whole can of tomatoes and a can of beef broth instead of the water for a bit more flavor. I also seasoned the ground beef with pepper and salt while browning.

I've been making this for several years & it's a favorite for my husband & I. It's so easy & tasty! To add a little kick, I use diced tomatoes with chilies & use some of the drained liquid instead of water. My husband likes it better spicy. I like it a bit more mild!
