Homemade Taco Seasoning

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 to 1 1/2 lb. ground meat
  • 2 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp. dehydrated onion flakes
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 can of diced green chilies
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 a cup of water

Directions

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.

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!
