Make Your Own Taco Seasoning Mix

Taco Seasoning Mix
Two TBS (tablespoons) of this mix is equal to one envelope of store-bought Taco Seasoning.
  • 1 tsp constarch
  • 1 TBS minced onion
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional, only if you like it hot)
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (optional, only if you like it hot)
  • 1 TBS cumin
  • 1 TBS paprika
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
*Hint: I buy most of my spices at Big Lots, where I can get the Encore brand of spices for 50 cents (3.17 oz bottle).

Taco Meat
Use this recipe for Nachos, soft Tacos, etc. Cooked chicken slices/pieces can be substituted for ground beef.
  • Brown or boil (boiling creates softer texture and is easier to drain off grease) 1 lb ground beef, drain
  • Add 1/2 Cup water
  • Add 2 TBS Taco Seasoning Mix, stir
  • Simmer 5-10 mins
