Where Does Flavor Come From?

Where does flavor come from, Mommy?  Well, Dear.  Flavor comes from real food.  Some nice people are suing Taco Bell saying that the meat in their tacos isn't all meat and has a bunch of chemicals in it.

Actually, Dear, all fast food has chemicals in it.

Some people are saying that we need the chemicals for flavor, that the chemicals make it taste good.  But those are bad people and you are never to talk to them. 

Chemicals are imitation flavor.  Remember that, now! 

Mommy doesn't know why people would be confused about taco seasoning.  Because it is really easy.  We have our own taco seasoning recipe that tastes good, is easy to make and is made of real dried herbs and spices from our cabinet at home. 

Here is how we make it

Taco Seasoning Mix.
2 t. dry minced onion
1 t. salt
1 t. chili powder
1/2 t. dried minced garlic
1/4 t. dried oregano
1/2 t. ground cumin

See?  It's really very easy.  We get hamburger from the freezer, cook it, add the mix that Mommy makes and put it in the taco.  This recipe makes the equivalent of one of those packaged taco seasoning mixes from the store.  This isn't a perfect solution, but have your read the ingredients of those packages?

Remember that this whole thing just isn't brain surgery.
