I like to make my taco seasoning in bulk; it is cheaper than the store bought envelopes and is much healthier. If stored in an air tight container it can last for up to a year in the pantry.
- 1 cup chili powder
- 1 tbs. salt
- 1 tbs. pepper
- 9 tsp. cumin
- 6 tsp. paprika
- 5 tsp. garlic powder
- 5 tsp. onion powder
- 2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
- 2 tsp. oregano
- 1 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional or can be adjusted for heat)
Mix all seasonings, and store in air tight container.
Use 3 tbs. for every pound to a pound and a half of hamburger meat.
Brown the hamburger meat until it is cooked all the way through. Add 3 tbs. of taco seasoning, and ⅔ cup of water; simmer on low for 5-10 minutes. Serve.
