oil for deep frying
one green bell pepper (just use one pepper)
fresh garlic (use powdered or garlic salt if you have it)
chili seasoning mix (use chili powder if you have it)
Taco seasoning packet. I have a big container of it so I forget to include it in the grocery lists. Add about a dollar to your total to pick up some taco seasoning. Or use the spices that you have in your spice cabinet, ie., cumin, garlic powder or salt, chili powder, you should be able to come up with the taste with those.
