Taco Seasoning

Do you buy taco seasoning packages? I used to. It is packed with lots of sugar, preservatives and worst of all MSG or one of those aliases it goes by such as "natural flavoring".  It should be illegal to call a so called "flavor enhancer" NATURAL!
Here is a great combinations that is easy to mix up and store for every time you want to make tacos. This isn't my original recipe but I've been using it for so long I don't remember where I first found it.

Taco Seasoning
Enough for 4 to 5 lbs of hamburger
  • 3 Tbls chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 3/8 tsp cayenne pepper or 3/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 3/4 tsp oregano
  • 1 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 4 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 3 tsp sea salt
  • 3 tsp black pepper


Measure everything into a 1/2 pint mason jar or bpa free container with a secure lid.
Secure the lid and shake the container to blend completely.

To use in tacos or taco salad:

Measure approximately 2 to 3 tablespoon of the taco spice mixture over about 1 to 1 1/2 lbs, browned and drained ground bison or beef. Simmer on low with the spices for 5 minutes. 
Serve over lettuce, chopped tomatoes and goat cheese yogurt and whatever toppings you like.
For taco shells use this recipe for Flax Seed Tortilla Wraps
It is fast and easy to do just a little prep to make a meal of tacos or taco salad special and super delicious.
