    Love the flavours of this recipe thanks, and it is so simple.
    I just wondered about the "drain the excess grease" part for an LCHF diet? In fact I added a bit of butter for frying and didn't drain anything.
    For taco seasoning I used the Tex-mex seasoning, but then checked the quantity against the Dietdoctor tortilla recipe and just added two tablespoons for 450 g meat which was plenty spicy for us. Maybe we just can't take the spice.

    Some people don't care for the excess grease that can pool on top, especially when using a higher fat ground beef.
