DIY Taco Seasoning

Ditch the packet stuff and make your own Homemade Taco Seasoning! It's so easy!

1 tbls. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. dried minced onion (or onion powder)
½ tsp. cayenne pepper (or red pepper flakes)
½ tsp. paprika
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. course-ground black pepper
½ tsp. dried oregano (optional)

Mix together all ingredients. Store in an airtight container until ready to use (I use a small mason jar).

When you are ready to use use your Homemade Taco Seasoning, use about 2 tablespoons per 1 pound of meat.

Brown your beef and drain off fat. Sprinkle seasoning evenly over meat and add 1/3 cup of water. Simmer until water is adsorbed.
