We had a not very fancy meal of tacos on Monday.  I have been craving tacos like the ones my Mom used to make.  To be honest, it was ground meat and the McCormick Taco seasoning mix but they taste right to me.  I will not say this taco meat tastes like that but it came out awfully taste.  The homemade flour tortillas helped too.  So, even though they did not taste anything like my Mom's tacos, they were so tasty they satisfied the craving.  Which, honestly, you cannot ask for more then that.

Taco Meat

Note:  This is the filling for tacos.  Use a bit of the meat mixture inside flour tortillas and add cheese, lettuce, tomato, or nothing at all.

2 pounds ground meat

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 onion, minced

4 garlic cloves, minced

2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons black pepper

2 teaspoons oregano

2 teaspoons coriander

1/2 teaspoon ground ancho chili

1/2 teaspoon ground chipolte chili

2 teaspoons paprika

4 tablespoons sugar

In a large skillet, heat the oil.  Add the onion.  Let it brown for about five minutes and add the ground meat and garlic.  Brown the meat.  Turn the heat down and mix in all the spices.  Let meld over low heat.  Serve with flour tortillas and any toppings you would wish to add.
