Tacos are a great way to use ground meat.

It doesn’t matter how creative you are, or how much expertise you have in preparing food. If all you have to work with is storage foods, there is a real potential for diet monotony setting in.

Seasonings that can be used to spice up meat may be particularly useful. During an emergency, you may end up with a less-than-choice piece of meat to cook. (Think roadkill.)

Or you have a piece of meat that is tough and rank-smelling, such as might come from an adult boar hog, or a bull. One way to deal with this scenario could be to grind or finely-chop the meat,  simmer it until tender, and  then add taco seasonings.

This recipe, from Jan LeBaron’s “Jan’s Fabulous Food Storage Recipes,” use food storage ingredients to create a tasty, handy taco mix that can be made ahead of time, and used as needed.

Taco Seasoning Mix

2 tsp onions, chopped dehydrated

1 tsp garlic, granules, dried

1 tsp oregano, crushed, dried

1/2 tsp cornstarch

1/2 tsp crushed red peppers, dried

1 tsp salt

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp cumin, ground, dried
