1 package taco seasoning mix

1/4 Cup brown sugar (optional)

Brown the ground turkey or beef. Drain off any fat. Add remaining ingredients and simmer or cook in a crock-pot on low. I like to add water up to the top of the pot because I get more servings (at least 10). Serve with desired condiments: diced onion, grated cheese, sour cream, taco chips, etc (but add extra points for those) .
