As I write this the temperature outside is 112 degrees F.  It’s really too hot to cook but for some strange reason I starting thinking tacos.  I’ve already been to the store (when it was only 100 degrees) and picked up some organic canned pinto beans, Colby jack cheese, lettuce and tortillas.  In the house we already have crispy taco shells, tomatoes, and salsa.  While at the store I also bought some boneless chicken and a small package of lean ground beef.  So as you can see, I can go one of several ways here.  Soft or crispy, ground beef, chicken, or vegetarian tacos.  Now you may ask, why homemade taco seasoning?

The last time I shopped for taco ingredients I forgot to buy one of those seasoning packets.

So I got online and found this recipe.

Tips – I don’t use as much salt as the recipe calls for.  Otherwise I’ve changed nothing else.
