My Perfect Taco

I've rarely met a taco I didn't like, but for me, this recipe is the best. It doesn't involve hours of slaving over the stove, which I love to do, but life doesn't always permit so I'm happy I stumbled upon this quick and tasty recipe. This is my version of a recipe I found in Whole Foods, using their 365 Everyday Value® Southwestern Grille Seasoning. This range of seasonings disappeared for a while, but thankfully returned. I like to think that maybe it had something to do with my e-mail pleading for its return. Yes, when it comes to the tastiest tacos, I have no shame. * 1 pound ground beef
*2 tablespoons 365 Everyday Value® Southwestern Grille Seasoning
*1/2 cup of salsa

Brown beef and seasoning for 5 minutes. Add the salsa and simmer on low for another 5 minutes. I also like to add a handful of frozen corn when adding the salsa.
Serve with your favorite toppings on a hard or soft shell. For me, my taco has a layer of cheddar on the bottom, topped by warm beef to melt the cheese. Next comes fresh cilantro - no lettuce. Then comes a good dowsing of Cholula Hot Sauce. To me, this is the perfect taco.While I couldn't find a link for the exact recipe anymore, I thank Whole Foods for the great inspiration. And thanks for bringing back our favorite seasoning for tacos!!!
