I’m still not 100% compliant with my menu plan, but I’m getting there. Last week, I made bacon wrapped chicken with a side of vegetables and mushrooms. They were pretty good, but the meal that really stole the show were the tacos.
Initially, I planned on making taco seasoning from scratch, but the prepared stuff was just too tempting. After browning the ground beef in a pan, I drained it and placed it in the slow cooker. Then, I mixed the taco seasoning mix in a bowl. Before pouring the mixture over the ground beef, I tasted it. That stuff is never salty or spicy enough for me.
So, I kicked things up a bit with about a 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt and a 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper.
After 6 hours on low in the slow cooker, the beef was absolutely divine. My first time making tacos was a total success. I can’t wait to try shredded beef, chicken, and fish tacos.
