Everyone I’ve ever made tacos for has begged me to make it over and over. Trust me, after tasting my Mom’s recipe you will never go back to the packet stuff again. You can use this for ground beef, shredded chicken (I like using rotisserie chicken) or ground turkey.
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cups beef broth (2 bouillon cubes + 2 cups water)
  • 1-8 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
