Taco Seasoning Mix

I have fiddled with a few online recipes and came up with a homemade taco seasoning that's not too hot yet has a little bit of a kick.  It has flavor, but not too much to overpower the rest of your taco.  Perfect combo of spices and herbs if you ask me!


Taco Seasoning Mix

1 lb. browned ground beef
1 T. chili powder
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. onion powder
1/4 t. crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 t. dried oregano
1/2 t. paprika
1 1/2 t. ground cumin
1 t. sea salt
1 t. black pepper

Add the ingredients listed to browned ground beef.  Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.

Better yet...make it in bulk so you have it on hand and ready to go!

Taco Seasoning Mix (bulk)

6 T. chili powder
1 T. garlic powder
1 T. onion powder
1 1/2 t. crushed red pepper flakes
1 1/2 t. dried oregano
1 T. paprika
3 T. ground cumin
1 T. salt
1 T. black pepper

Makes approx. 1 cup of mix.  Store it in an air tight container.  When needed scoop 2 1/2 T. mix for 1 lb. of ground beef.

This sounds great....I have a lot of recipes that require taco seasonings...and it's very expensive to purchase. Making your own makes good sense...and I love the ingredients.

Thanks for sharing.
