Seasoned Taco Meat


  • I always double or triple this recipe, in order to have leftovers.
  • It freezes well, too.
  • This taco meat is great for using up leftover veggies or frozen shredded zucchini from our garden.  The possibilities are endless!
  • It’s not a particularly labor-intensive recipe, but it does require a bit of time to simmer.
  • I like to eat it on salad greens like a taco salad, but my boys prefer to eat it with “tortilla” chips.

    Do you have a recipe using EO? I plan on attending a meeting tomorrow night and need a food that uses EO in the recipe.

      Janet–I have not cooked with EO’s, but here’s a source I’d trust for EO recipes: doTERRA Blog (Recipes). Let us know if you try any of them!
