  1. Note you can use ground beef, turkey, chicken, bison, pork, or vegan meat in this recipe. If you are keeping this low-fat, use ground turkey or chicken.
  2. If you are gluten free, be sure to use Pioneer's certified gluten free taco mix! Not all spice mixes are gluten free so you want to make sure to stay safe and use Pioneer.
  3. You can use any red salsa brand you like.
  4. Tortilla chips - most are gluten free, but some do have wheat flour so always read the label of the bag! 
  5. These tacos are great to make ahead. The taco meat will keep fresh in an air-tight container in the refrigerator up to 4 days. You can also freeze the cooked taco meat and thaw in the microwave oven.
