i'm not even sure where to start.... if you don't like like hot (spicy) food, then use ingredients which don't have a high heat index, such as chile powder, or cumin, or mild salsa. please don't bastardize mexican cuisine by using ketchup as the base sauce for your taco filling.


ANYTIME you see a taco recipe with ketchup just move on. Seriously, this is terrible and a travesty. Yuck. Stick with cumin, garlic, maybe some paprika and fresh cilantro and you'll be wayyyy better off.


A ketchup like Heinze 57 works excellent because of the spices they use, but don't use so much. Use just enough to cover the meat, when it heats it makes a nice sauce. I've been using this receipe for 30 years now. You'd be surprised how much people love it, especially kids. They will ask you for the receipe and then be surprised that it's only ketchup.
