Bulk Taco Meat
One of our family’s favorite week night meal choices is tacos! With a variety of toppings, shells and sauces, everyone can create their personalized perfect taco. I prefer meat, cheese, onions, tomatoes and homemade guacamole atop a huge pile of greens, while my littlest one prefers a flour tortilla shell filled with only meat and cheese. Whatever your preferences are, your family is sure to love this taco meat recipe. Tomato sauce and cilantro add a little zip to your old stand by. Having your freezer full of this family favorite makes it a cinch to get a hot, family friendly, tasty meal on the table in no time!
