Ground Beef Taco Supreme

I love Taco's but don't really like the flavor of taco seasoning.I found this recipe in in the Family Circle mag and can't wait to try this one.
I LOVE that it uses individual spices instead of a spice packet full of MSG!
If you try it, let me know how it tastes!

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
2 Tbsp. onion flakes
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. black pepper
3 Tbsp. tomato paste
1/3 cup water
1 pkg. hard taco shells
Shredded lettuce, diced tomato, grated pepper jack cheese (or whatever kind of cheese you like) and sour cream.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Brown beef for 5 minutes.
Add onion flakes, chili powder, garlic, salt, cumin and pepper.
Cook 3 minutes.
Whisk tomato paste and water together.
Add to skillet and cook for 2 minutes, until thickened.
Heat taco shells in microwave for 45 seconds.
Spoon ground beef filling into taco shells and serve with whatever toppings you prefer.
