Easy Ground Beef Tacos (Gluten-Free)

As a kid, the first tacos I ever had were far from traditional Mexican style tacos. The were much closer to the style of tacos later made famous by chains like Taco Bell and others. They were made with ground beef, lettuce, cheese, and tomatoes. If your kids are partial to the fast food version, they will likely love these little gems.

We tried the tacos and they are GREAT. We will make the seasoning ingredients and have them on hand for anytime we want tacos. My granddaughter loved them, thank you!

Is this overly spicy? I've made it up and tasted the dry powder and I don't think kids could eat it,
The heat cook out once added to mince?
