Easy beef tacos made with lean beef and homemade seasoning. The homemade seasoning can't be beat. Serve over your favorite tortilla and top with your favorite toppings. This seasoned ground beef is also wonderful in a taco salad.
In a small bowl, combine all the seasonings.
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add a little oil to coat the pan and place the meat in the pan. Using a wooden spoon, begin to break up the meat.
When the meat is no longer pink, drain the fat (if not using a lean meat) and evenly sprinkle the taco seasoning over the ground beef. Stir to ensure the meat is evenly seasoned. Add 2/3 cup of water and cook until the liquid had evaporated, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and assemble your tacos.
Warm your soft or hard shell tortillas and add a scoop of seasoned ground meat. Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy.
