Tasty Taco Seasoning

I've used packaged taco seasoning for
the last time! It's always been too
salty and not quite fresh enough. Last
week I finally found the right combination
of herbs and spices to tingle and delight
the taste buds.

Mix the following dry ingredients:
1 teaspoon dried basil
1-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon celery seed

In a pan, heat 1/2 cup water or veggie
broth or chicken broth to a simmer.
Add 1 or 2 minced garlic cloves,
1/4 cup chopped onion and the dry ingredients.
Simmer until onions are soft.

Add 1 lb. Smart Ground* and cook
until browned. Then add 2 Tablespoons
tomato paste and several dashes of

Voila! A fresh, tasty taco filling.
