Step 1

cook ground beef and diced onions until beef is browned then drain some of the fat if needed. (you want it to be juicy though for the other ingredients to cook right)

Step 2

salt to taste with garlic salt then add the hot tomato sauce and let it cook on medium to -medium high while stirring often

Step 3

after 2-3 minutes of cooking you will sprinkle the parmesan cheese over it and continue cooking until it is the right consistancy for taco meat.

can use less hot tomato sauce if your family does not like it that hot. can also substitute for regular tomato sauce, just add a little chilli powder to the mix! also can add a little water if it dries out too much while cooking. (you don't want it to be too watery though) the parmesan cooked with it gives a yummy flavor to it. you can add more or less to your taste.
