Taco Night: A Tribute to Glen W. Bell, Jr., Founder of Taco Bell

The founder of Taco Bell, Glen W. Bell, died over the weekend at the age of 86.  You can read his obituary in the New York Times.  While I have only eaten at Taco Bell once in my life, as an entrepreneur and taco lover, I decided to make tacos tonight in honor of him.

I made a very simple beef taco, using — you guessed it — ground beef from the steer.  Tim’s brother and his wife gave us a collection of Penzey’s Spices when we moved in May.  Included in the set, was a bottle of Taco Seasoning.  We finished the bottle tonight — it’s such an easy way to prepare a meal!  Brown 1 pound of ground beef, turkey or chicken; drain the fat; add 4 tablespoons of the taco seasoning and cook for one minute; then add 3/4 a cup of water and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.  So easy and delicious!

I will be ordering some more taco seasoning tomorrow!
