    I make this all the time - it's so easy and good. It tastes just as good fresh as it does the 2nd or 3rd time around. The recipe yields a lot of taco meat, perfect for having enough to freeze and eat another night. Enjoy!

    Just made this delicious taco meat. I halved the recipe and only added about a cup of my homemade pasta sauce instead of crushed tomatoes. It came out great. Next time I'll make the full batch and freeze the rest.

    Very good. I made it with ground chicken instead because I don't really like beef, but it was great in a taco.
