This doesn’t need much intro.  Instead of buying those taco seasoning packets, I’ve started making my own using this recipe.  I use 2 T per pound of meat and it seems like the perfect ratio.  As mentioned in the Chicken-Taco Cornbread Pie, I used 3 T and it was a little spicier than we like it – even for my husband, which is a shocker, so I will reduce that to 1.5-2 T next time I make it.

Taco Mix (T=tablespoon & t=teaspoon)

2 T chili powder

1/2 t garlic powder

1/2 t onion powder

1/2 t red pepper flakes

1/2 t oregano

1 t paprika

1 T cumin

2 1/2 t kosher salt

2 t pepper

Mix all ingredients together.  Mix 2 T mix with 1 pound of meat.
