Yes, we have KFC/Taco Bells here too. I believe that KFC, Taco Bell, Long John Silver's, and A&W Root Beer are all owned by the same parent company. I have seen Taco Bell / LJS, and LJS / A&Ws.

I also enjoy a Taco Bell taco every once in awhile. There are many copycat recipes on the internet. Here is a link to some that I Googled.

Taco Bell Taco Meat Copycat Recipes

Most of them looked similar. You might just have to try one and see if you like it. Good luck.

I once ate a dozen 39 cent tacos from Taco Bell. That was many years ago. I probably had the munchies.

I used to buy two of the 6 pack boxes myself. Oh mean green, how many pounds did you cause me to gain?

Why are Taco Bells tacos so good?
Are they? It's been years since I've had any. Can't stand the thought of eating beef that's been treated with ammonia.

Somehow I don't think of that as "good food." I wonder why?

You may be right! I hadn't heard of that before so I did some research on Google and found this article in The New York Times.

Not sure I want to eat fast food ground beef anymore
