Ingredients Needed:

  • Ground Beef ( or Turkey)

Ground Beef/Turkey: If desired, you can even use this for ground chicken or pork. Just remember, if needed, drain the meat after the meat is no longer pink.

Minced Onion: You can use a fresh onion for this, if you wish. Add it in when you are browning the meat.

Taco Seasoning: I have included the recipe for a homemade version. But, feel free to use your favorite homemade recipe or packaged brand.
