1 pound hamburger

3/4 cup water

1/3 cup oatmeal, briefly pulsed in the coffee grinder

2 tbls butter

2 tsp Hoff’s Chuckwagon Chili Powder

1/4 tsp pepper

1/4 t MSG (optional but also called Accent in the spice section)

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp salt

1 tbls vinegar


To get the meat into really fine particles, put water, meat, and butter in the bottom of a skillet on medium heat and stir up using a fork. Keep going until it is really well broken up.

Add the rest of the ingredients and brown the meat. As you simmer it the meat will get a little soupy and gooey. Keep simmering, uncovered, until the meat is nice and thick.

Serve on hard or soft taco shells with cheese, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, and of course, Hoff Sauce!
