It has been a while since I last had texmex and the craving for it had been growing and needed to be satisfied. Although my definition of tacos has changed greatly from when I was a kid I sometimes crave those tacos that were made with the store bought taco seasoning packages. This time however, I decided to make my own taco seasoning and it turned out really well. It wasn’t quite the same as the store bought packages but it was very tasty and the tacos satisfied my texmex cravings. One of the things that I like so much about tacos is that you can place so many great thing in them in addition to the meat. This time I went with the classic lettuce, tomato, salsa, cheese and sour cream. I served the tacos with a side of guacamole .
- 1 batch taco seasoned ground beef
- 8 tortillas (hard or soft) (corn tortillas for gluten free)
- lettuce (shredded)
- tomatoes (chopped)
- cheese (grated)
- sour cream

Mmmm, I don't know what it is about tex-mex but it IS so satisfying! and the best part, it is usually very low-cost too! double score!
Those are perfect! Simple yet flawlessly executed. You can't beat that, including the photography.
It looks awesome !
Goodbye Taco Bell. Hello amazing tacos.
Awesome!! Nothing beats a good taco. Those looks really good. I book marked the seasoning so I can make these.
I admire your decision to make your own taco seasoning. That's something most people would never think to do, but clearly it worked out great!
Tacos are comfort food!! I usually put hot sauce on mine
i was SO close to buying tortillas yesterday but didn't… and now i totally regret it
tacos are something that makes a great meal on a crazy weeknight.
Mmmmm…so yummy 😀
Oh yum! I love tacos this way with the soft wrapper! Am going to check out your homemade taco seasoning now! 🙂
I love tacos! Yours look amazing. Didn't realise it is simple to make the taco seasoned ground beef.
This looks like something I will have to definitely try sometime soon!
Tacos remind me of my childhood since my mom used to buy one of those Ortega kits and we would make our own…it always made eating dinner so much fun! I love the seasoning you used.
you make anything look good!!
Ha! Those are the best directions EVER. I am SO craving tacos right now!
America's test kitchen has a great recipe too – adds a little tomato paste and vinegar – which might be the kick you are needing (when you said it wasn't quite the same as the packet)?
I posted the recipe on my blog – cause I use it often and can never remember the book it came out of – homemade tacos rule!
Your taco's look delish
I think my daughter would LOVE these…mostly b/c of the guac!
I love tacos – your taco seasoning sounds perfect.
I tried your mango black bean salsa on chicken tacos and they turned out really amazing.

Yup, this is just the way I like my tacos. Quick and easy to put together and sooo tasty.
Mmm…. these look so fresh and yummy!
I love these simple tacos any time of the year.
Thanks for the taco seasoning recipe. I'm going to make some. The stuff at the supermarket is expensive. Looks yummy.
Tortillas and tacos are easy to prepare, quick and fun to eat, always having that surprise as it lands in your mouth. Yumyum! Like your photos!
I love my crispy taco but this soft version looks lovely too. Simple and comforting!
I love tacos, but we don't get good ones in the UK, this recipe (and the previous about taco) will come handy to me, thanks 🙂
Love this classic tex mex dish!
