(This is for 1lb of ground beef or chicken)
1 Tbsp chili powder
2 tsp minced onions
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp crushed red pepper (I like to grind them up in my mortar and pestle before I add them to the mix)
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Mix all your ingredients together until well blended. I like to mix them up in my mortar and pestle since it's already out to crush my red pepper flakes even more. Store in an air-tight container or use immediately. Use as much or as little as you like.
Don't forget to drain your meat of all the grease, and also add 3/4 cup water when adding the taco seasoning. Simmer until water is mostly absorbed and the meat is well seasoned.
This is a great base for your tacos. I also like to add a few dashes of our favorite hot sauce onto the meat when I add the spices for a little extra kick. So yummy!
