Tacos are one of my favorite foods. If you told me I had to choose five things/meals I could only eat from now til the end of me, well I'd for sure pick tacos. My favorites ever come from Pappasito's!

I decided to make some the other day - and I didn't have a spice packet! I almost always use Old El Paso. PANIC!

Then I read one of my cooking blogs and they gave the taco spice recipe.

1/2 Tsp Salt
1/2 Tsp Pepper
1/2 Tsp Oregano
1 Tbsp Garlic Salt
1 Tbsp Chili Powder
1 Tbsp Cumin

Mix together with your meat and I added a few tablespoons of water at a time until I got the consistency the way I wanted it. Just like on the packet it says 2/3 cup of water. I think that's too much. So I just poured some water in a cup and drizzled some here and there until I got it right.

I think it was some of the best taco meat I ever had. I won't buy the packets anymore. Also I would maybe add a few dashes of hot sauce. We like our tacos spicy!


P.S. If I  had to choose five foods/meals from now til the end of my days that I could ONLY eat:

Tacos, Chicken N Dumplings, Spaghetti w/ Garlic bread, Hamburger w/ fries, Grilled Cheese like my grandma (and me) used to make
