Truth: Until recently, I only used pre-mixed taco-spice packets from the grocery store in my #TacoTuesday (and Wednesday and Thursday and, well, any day!) meals. I didn't really think to broaden my horizons, and mix and match spices and flavors on my own. That is, until I was introduced to Spice Islands and their ridiculously easy and delish taco recipe. 

Spice Islands' elevated premium spices take flavor to the next level. They're pure and delicious and simple; unlike those mystery taco packets which are loaded with sodium, fillers, and food coloring. (Yuck!) A little Spice Islands' garlic, cayenne pepper, and cilantro, mixed and proportioned to your personal taste (i.e. I like my tacos spicy!), and you have the tastiest chopped meat ever. You don't need lots of oil; just keep the ingredients streamlined and the process simple. Taco Whateverday has never been easier--or tastier.
