    This recipe is a Winner! We made these last night after seeing this here and they came out great. I didn't even have to add more chili powder and they really do taste like Taco bell.

    Do you have a gluten-free version of this?

    what do you normally use to thicken things? If you can use it, arrowroot is a thickener used often...don't know if it is gluten free but measure just like flour--or corn starch could be used if you can use that, again, measure just like flour.

    You can use Guar Gum or Zantham Gum as a thickener instead of flour.

    Bought some the other night @ my local wally world. Was looking right @ reduced salt and for some unknown reason picked up the full salt version. I fixed my tacos & as I began to eat, all I could taste was to much salt. Wished I had seen this recipe before then. Will use next time.

    Don't even bother with the thickener, I use everything except flour and add 1 TB of tomato paste, let it simmer on low heat for 20 minutes and it thickens up great. I do use 85/15 ground beef. But just a suggestion for excellent taco meat use a chili cut ground beef, it taste just like chopped steak.

    Have this simmering in the electric skillet as I am typing this. Though I almost messed up when mixing the spices, mistook cayenne for chili powder.... luckily for me, I noticed after only adding in the onion...wouldn't have been able to eat it. Though the rest of the family probably would have loved it. And the daughter says she likes it, that it tastes just like taco bell's and we eat a lot of taco bell.

    I made this the other day and it was fantastic. We were out of regular paprika and so we used smoked paprika and it had a really nice chipotle taste. I am getting ready to make a big batch and plan on splitting it down the middle, half with paprika and half with the smoked paprika.
