Meals Using Deals takes deals each week and makes a dinner for under $10 for a family of 4. We use whichever store has the best deals out of: Walmart, Target, Kroger/Smiths, or Maceys. I will try to post several during the week.

Elaina from A Time Out for Mommy makes her own homemade taco seasoning!

“I always make my own taco seasoning. I don’t like the packages because they contain a bunch of artificial stuff and homemade tastes EXACTLY the same! I usually mix up chicken, steak, ground beef or turkey tacos depending on what is on sale that week.”

This week, make a meal using deals using Meijer’s ad:

Taco Night! (about $6-7 to feed 4):

1 lb Certified Angus Beef Ground Beef form Chuck, $2.79/lb
1 jar Select Meijer Naturals Salsa (16 oz.), $1.19
1 container Meijer Sour Cream (16 oz.), $1.39
1-2 packages (freezer leftovers) Meijer Soft Tortillas (10 ct.), $0.99

Taco Recipe
1 pound chopped meat
1 tbsp chili powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground pepper

Brown chopped meat until all juices have evaporated. Turn off heat and add all spices, plus 1/4 cup water. Mix well and let sit before serving.
