This will season 1 to 1-1/2 pounds of ground meat. I like things really spicy so you may want to half the recipe if you don't.
Brown your ground meat (we use venison for our tacos). Add dry spices, green chiles and a half a cup of water. Stir and simmer until as dry as you like your taco meat.
Source: My original recipe from necessity.
I keep a jar of homemade "Chili" seasoning mix in my pantry. Here's recipe:
1/4 cup ground red chili pepper or cayenne
1/4 cup paprika
2 Tbsp.dried minced onion
4 tsp.ground cumin
2 tsp. dried oregano
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. crushed dried red pepper
Combine all ingredients. Makes 3/4 Cup
Add 3 Tbsp. to each pound of meat when making chili. Replace commercial chili powder in favorite recipes. Use to season meat for tacos or taco salad. Add to ground beef for grilled burgers or a meat loaf.
If your pallet is tender just use less. It's spicy!
