Homemade Taco (and Chili) Seasoning
Yield: Approximately ½ cup of seasoning
  • 6 teaspoons chili powder
  • 5 teaspoons paprika
  • 4½ teaspoons cumin
  • 2½ teaspoons garlic powder
  • 3 teaspoons dried onion
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  1. Combine ingredients. Store in an airtight container with your other spices.
To use:
  1. Use 3 tablespoons of seasoning for each pound of meat in tacos or chili. For taco meat, add 3 tablespoons of seasoning and ¾ cup of water to 1 pound of cooked meat and simmer until water has evaporated.
Adjust the heat level in your mix by adding more cayenne pepper. This recipe makes a relatively mild mix, so add a bit more cayenne if you like things spicier.
