Taco Seasoning

I never really cared for the taco seasonings you buy in the little baggies. They always seem too salty or too spicy. I came across this recipe and it's actually not too bad. Still just a touch on the salty side, but it is not too spicy and the cumin adds some great flavor. The recipe below makes about 3 tablespoons of seasoning which is good for about 1 pound of meat. We put it on some chicken and made burritos with beans, cheese, and sour cream. Turned out quite tasty.

1 Tbsp chili powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. paprika
1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1/2 Tbsp. flour
2/3 c. water

1. Put chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.

2. Mix!

3. (Optional) If want add a little spice, add about a 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flake.
4. Add flour and mix thoroughly.
5. Add spice mix and water to meat and reduce in skillet.
6. Stuff face.
