I LOVE tacos!!! Anything taco or mexican is my favorite and has been since I was a little girl. I don’t like using the prepackaged taco seasons you get at the store. They taste too salty for me. So for a while I was using Wildtree Taco Seasoning which I love!! But it hasn’t been in the budget to buy the bulk stock we need for how often we make taco meat. So I went look for a taco meat recipe and stumbled on The Pioneer Womans Beef Taco Recipe and gave it a whirl. I’ve done it twice now and love it! Not too seasoned, not too spicy and we use Elk Meat.

1/2 Yellow Onion, diced
2 lbs Ground Beef/Game
1/2 tsp Chili Powder
1/2 tsp Cumin
