You will need the following ingredients:

1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg of taco seasoning

Win Better Than Bouillon Bases (5 winners!)

I love to cook, but sometimes I need a bit of help in the flavor department.  One product that I always keep in my home is Better Better Than Bouillon Stocks.  They are available in several flavors, including Beef, Chicken, Vegetable and Chili!  

Superior Touch also has Vegetarian, Organic, Low Sodium and Kosher bases.

They add so much delicious flavors to the meals that I make at home.

One of my favorite and easiest recipes to make with the Beef Base is my own version of Shephard's Pie.  Here is the recipe:

Brown 1 lb. of Ground Beef and drain fat.  
Add 1 bag of mixed vegetables (corn, green bean and carrot)
Dissolve 1 tbsp. of Better than Bouillon Beef Base in 16 oz of water and add to ground beef and vegetables.
Heat until vegetables are fully cooked.

Pour into a pie dish

In another pot make mashed potatoes.  You can either make homemade or instant.

Place cooked mashed potatoes on top of beef and veggie mixture and serve.

Of course in my home the beef and veggie mixture never makes the p…
