Spicy Tacos with Guacamole

spicy tacos

Most taco seasoning mixes contain wheat. This recipe has the same ingredients without the wheat!  These tacos are even better with fresh guacamole and salsa.

Seasoning for Tacos
Stir together in small bowl:
1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika

Taco Meat
1 pound lean ground beef
1 pound sausage (I use Jimmy Dean’s Regular)
Brown in large frying pan over medium heat, chopping meat into small pieces. When browned, drain, then add seasoning mix and stir well.

Corn Tortillas
Heat broiler. Spray baking sheet with oil. Cover baking sheet with a single layer of tortillas; they will hang over the edges. Broil tortillas for 2 minutes. Remove from oven and turn tortillas over. Broil an additional minute.
