Most people who know me know this, but I generally do the cooking
on Sunday nights. Most of the time I make taco meat, using my own
Add the onion and garlic powder to the meat, then cook it up in a
skillet or frying pan until it's cooked. (If you can't tell when
hamburger is fully cooked, then I can't help you.) Then add the other
ingredients, with enough water so that the seasonings get mixed in
with the meat. The season-all is kinda like Lawry's
Seasoned Salt, but I'm not sure if it's exactly the same stuff.
- 1 lb. hamburger
- 4 tsp. onion powder
- 1 tsp. Garlic powder
- 1 tsp. Chili powder
- 1/2 tsp. Salt
- 3/4 tsp. Season-all
- 1/4 tsp. Pepper
- pinch of cumin
- water (as needed)
Of course, if you use fresh ingredients (fresh onion and garlic), it'll
probably taste better. One variant I really liked was cutting up an
orange bell pepper and throwing that in. However, at our house we
have to be careful with fresh seasonings -- if Jacob sees something
other than meat in his taco meat -- a piece of onion, for example --
he'll pick it out. And Benjamin has tired of it entirely; he picks
the cheese off the top, thus thrashing his father's miniscule ego.
I have at times used cilantro as well, but it has fallen out of
favor in our home. Anyway, if anybody uses this recipe, I'd
appreciate a note to let me know what you thought of it, and if you
have any suggestions.
