This is a meal-prep must. You can use it for taco salad, lettuce wraps, or just good, old-fashioned tacos! If you don’t like cumin, don’t use it. If you want more heat, add some cayenne. Of course, you can make this with other ground meats such as pork, turkey, or chicken if beef isn’t your thing. Sure, you could buy pre-made taco seasoning, but this way you’ve got flavour control and who really knows what’s in that packaged stuff?
