I made a huge batch of this seasoning mix a while back, and I just love using it to season ground beef for taco salad. It has a ton of flavor, and it beats those MSG-filled packets at the store. I brown some meat (usually 1 to 1.5 pounds) and drain off the fat, sprinkle 3T of this seasoning on top, add in 1 cup of water, cover, and simmer. It couldn’t be easier! I like crushing tortilla chips or Doritos on the bottom (yeah, talk about MSG, right?!), putting the meat, some cheese, lettuce, avocado, red onion, tomato, and a big blob of sour cream on top. This spice blend is by far the best I’ve had. I love it!

Oh- that alvacado looks so good! I love how liberal you were with it… how I would love a bite!
Well once you cut one open, you really should use the whole thing…and since there are only 2 of us, we each get half 😉
Nothing wrong with some MSG. Don’t be fooled by those hippy “I’ve got a headache” naysayers.
My non-hippie husband has bad reactions to MSG so I try to avoid it when I can 🙂
