Taco Meat



I don't need to go into much detail on taco meat because, well, it's just taco meat.  I don't like using the envelopes of taco seasoning because of all the 'extra' stuff in them and so much sodium!  This recipe allows the full flavor of taco meat without all the preservatives!  Enjoy on a taco salad or taco with some 5 Minute Guacamole and 10 Minute Pico De Gallo !!
This is also a paleo and clean eating food option.

Taco Meat

Ingredients:
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
2-3 tablespoons dried minced onion
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano leaves
3/4 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions:
Brown beef with onion and minced garlic.  Add rest of ingredients.  You can add water, a tablespoon at a time, if the mixture seems too dry.
