Taco Mess & Make Your Own Taco Seasoning

Best Buds @ Dinner. Is there anything better?..... They are drinking Parrot Punch!

I have been asked ... "Do you cook like that all the time?" ABSOLUTELY NOT. My son would not tolerate it. I do still try to sneak in a little creativity even when 8 year old friends visit.
Make Your Own Taco Seasoning
2 tsp. chili powder
1 1/2  tsp. paprika
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. coarse salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. oregano
dash of ground cayenne pepper or more to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste

Combine all seasoning ingredients, set aside. Brown 1 pound of ground beef. Add seasoning mix and toss to coat. Add 3/4 cup water and cook until water is absorbed.

Taco Mess
Cook beef as described above. Melt cheese on top. Place on top of tortilla chips. Top with sliced jalapenos if desired. Serve with salsa (the only thing I was allowed to put on  the table), guacamole, and sour cream.
