HOMEMADE TACO SEASONING

  IMG_0431I have been working on this recipe for a while and I finally feel like I have found a great balance of flavors.  It is very mildly spicy, so my can kids eat it.  This recipe makes a good quantity, you will have enough to to save in a jar for many taco nights to come. Here's the recipe: Taco Seasoning: 4 Tbsp chili powder 1 tsp onion powder 1 tsp dried oregano 1 tsp garlic powder 2 tsp paprika 6 tsp cumin 4 tsp salt 1/2 tsp ground black pepper 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper Put all of these ingredients in a jar and then shake! IMG_0437 Ground beef tacos: olive oil 1/2 small onion, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 lb ground beef 2 Tbsp taco seasoning taco shells diced tomato diced onion shredded lettuce grated cheese First saute onion and garlic in olive oil, then add 1  pound of ground beef and cook until browned.  Do not discard the oil after cooking, this will make your taco meat extra yummy.  I also usually add a 1/2 cup of water, if the mixture has dried out at all.  Mix in 2 Tbsp of the finished taco seasoning.  Serve in warmed taco shells with tomato, onion, shredded lettuce and cheese. Enjoy!
