Homemade Taco Seasoning

Did you know you can make the same seasoning packets you can buy in the store from ingredients in your spice drawer? My amazing mother gave me a great recipe years ago to use to season the ground beef for tacos. I personally think it tastes better than the packaged seasonings.

Taco Seasoning Mix (equivalent to one package of taco seasoning mix)

2 tsp. instant mixed onion
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp. crushed, dried red pepper
1/4 tsp. oregano

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl until evenly distributed. Use when recipes call for a seasoning packet. 

When adding to 1 lb. of cooked ground beef, add 1/2 cup of water and simmer of 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Makes filling for approximately 8 tacos.
