This was not a bad recipe, but I made a few adjustments. First, we used a whole pound of ground beef, because my husband needs more protein in his diet. The leftovers can always be reheated for another day. Second, instead of chili powder, I just used chili oil. We had this in our house anyway because my husband is Korean-American and likes his food spicy. Next, I used probably two tablespoons of already minced garlic. Again, my husband is Asian, so it has to be garlicky. I also easily doubled the amount of cumin, because after tasting these, I found it wasn't smoky enough for my liking. I skipped the Tobasco and added lime. To me, real tacos have a splash of lime. I also used the soft corn tortillas that you can find in most international foods sections at your grocer. Just heat them for 30 seconds to soften and they make a world of difference in authenticity in my opinion. So once I adjusted this recipe to our tastes, it was right on par. :)

This was very good. Even for the rest of the family that doesn't need to restrict salt. I plan to make a large enough batch to be able to freeze it so that it is available for my parents when they feel like a taco.

Not very flavorful, but healthy I guess.

This is a very good low sodium alternative to browning hamburger and dumping in a pkg of taco seasoning mix. I didn't have the Tabasco so I put in a bit of crushed red pepper and some Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime. Good stuff!

I LOVE this recipe!!! My patients raved about this one! The flavor was fabulous. It was a little more work to brown the meat and then cook the onion and garlic, but that is what makes the flavor!! Even my family requests this one!

Not ever having eaten Mexican before I thought this may be a good start, but is hard to make and corn tortillas are less than a desirable starch choice.I think Spanish rice with a roll would be agood sub.
