you plan ahead. The best thing about Yoder's Taco Beef filling
is that it is grass-fed beef made the Amish way! You can't do
better than that in a can. When you consider this, you really
should stock up on the taco seasoned beef for your everyday
use and rotate. Give it a try!

spice with ketchup and chili to make your own simple taco
seasoning mix.
