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?

Hi, I feel your pain. Sorry you've been going through it. Interestingly, my sensitivity went up when I was massively sleep deprived looking after my baby. Anything that stresses your body, stresses your immune system. Good work with the handwashing by the way - definitely a winner when ...

You have given me hope!

I wish you lived near here, I have the greatest massage therapist she does Swedish style, She can loosen up the stressed tight muscles wonderfully, I am prone to getting knots in my shoulders and neck, so I have to have them worked out once a month otherwise they start to limit mobility and hurt.

Oh, I did.... was referred to pt which hasn't helped at all. My muscles are super tight and they supposedly are causing the back pain. No idea what originally caused the problem but it started a couple years ago and has just gotten worse.
