Homemade Taco Seasoning

(Note: You can easily make a large batch of this and keep it in a canning jar, empty spice jar, etc, to have ready at any time.  Also makes a great, unusual Christmas gift!) 

The following amounts work well for us when I’m cooking roughly 1lb of meat:

chili powder = 1+ TBS

onion powder = 2 tsp – 1 TBS

ground cumin = 2 tsp – 1 TBS, or go hog wild, like I do

garlic powder = 2 tsp

paprika = 2 tsp

oregano = 2 tsp

salt = 1/2 tsp


Ready for this?


Add to browned meat with a little water, and simmer til it’s done to your tastebuds’ liking.
