I love tacos. Like….L~O~V~E. They are the perfect dinner. And let’s not mess with the side dishes, either. Just give me a plate of tacos, and walk away so I can devour that deliciousness!

While my husband and I love coming up with and finding new recipes for our Taco Tuesdays, sometimes you just want some good old fashioned tacos. Comfort tacos. The kind of tacos your mom would make any day of the week. Fry up some corn tortillas, where half of them were so crispy that they would break when you tried to fill them, and stuff those suckers full of seasoned ground beef with all the fixin’s! YUM!

My mom used the Lawry’s packets you get from the spice section at your grocery store. So, naturally, that is what I regularly use. Or, should I say, USED to use. Now, I use this recipe below anytime I have a hankering for good ole comfort tacos!

It’s nice and simple, and if you cook with seasonings regularly, you should have all the spices in your cupboard. YAY!

Recipe Notes

A couple of notes for you...

~ This is a mild taco seasoning. If you do not like mild seasoning packets from the store, or find those packets still a bit too spicy for your liking, decrease the crushed red pepper and black pepper by half.

~ Do NOT used smoked paprika! This will give your taco meat a bit of a smoked flavor (DUH!), and, in my opinion, does not taste well at all. It throws the entire flavoring off.

~ The tapioca starch is added as a thickener. Usually corn starch is added, but we did the Whole 30 last year, so I had to sub out the corn starch, and, well, I never went back. If you do not have tapioca starch, you can substitute corn starch or potato starch in equal proportions.

~ It will seem like a lot of mix for one pound of meat. It comes out to about 3 tablespoons of seasoning. But trust me. It will be okay.

Enjoy!
