Taco Seasoning Without a Package


We love tacos here, but I hate spending the money on pre-mixed seasoning packs when I know I have all the spices here so I thought I would share our recipe with you! This time I used a pound of ground beef, but you can easily substitute. Sometimes we used diced chicken - all is yummy!

  • Spices to use:
    • 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
    • 1-1/2 teaspoons cumin
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
All you have to do is brown your ground beef, drain it and add the seasonings. Sometimes I add a couple of tablespoons of water is I drained the beef really well.
