I usually quadruple the recipe and make it in a jar so I have it on hand at all times for tacos and taco salads. I like to brown 1 – 1 1/2 pounds of ground meat (I use beef sometimes, this time I used turkey), in a large skillet and drain off the fat. Then I sprinkle in 3 tablespoons of the seasoning and add 1 cup of water. I mix it all up and cover it and let it simmer for about 5 minutes. When I have all of the toppings prepped (I usually go for red onion, tomato, avocado, cheddar cheese, lettuce, sour cream and hot sauce) I take the lid off and let it bubble until most of the liquid cooks out (another couple of minutes). I like this piled in a warm tortilla or made into a taco salad over crushed tortilla chips.
