Description

Never use that salty seasoning packet again! By far the best homemade seasoning mix I’ve ever used.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Chili Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Cumin
  • 2 teaspoons Cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Coriander
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Cayenne Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Chives
  • TO MAKE THE TACOS:
  • 3 Tablespoons Shallot Or Onion, Diced
  • 1 pound Lean Ground Beef
  • 2 Tablespoons To 3 Tablespoons Taco Spice
  • ⅓ cups Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro, Minced
  • Tortillas, Lettuce, Cheese, Diced Tomato, Diced Avocado, For Serving

Preparation

Combine all dry spices in a jar, seal and shake to combine. Store in pantry up to 3 months.

To make tacos, saute shallot or onion in a skillet for 3 minutes. Add ground beef and brown, cooking until there is no more pink left in the meat. Drain fat, add 2-3 tablespoons spice and water. Stir together and simmer on low until slightly thickened. Add cilantro and stir through. If mixture seems a little dry for your taste, add a splash more water until the consistency is to your liking. Serve with taco fixin’s of your choice.
