I had few homemade spice mixes in my pantry so I don't need any fancy craps from grocery store. I don't see a reason why I should buy one while I can make homemade taco seasoning mix for wonderful ground beef.
This recipe is not a standard recipe, I add few ingredients in italic words--it is optional.
Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix
6 teaspoons chile powder
5 teaspoons paprika
4 1/2 teaspoons cumin
3 teaspoons onion powder
2 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano, optional
1 teaspoon ancho chile powder, optional
In storage container with tight-fitting lid, combine all ingredients, mix well. Seal tightly. Store in cool, dry place for up to 6 months. Makes 21 teaspoons (about 1/2 cup). Seven teaspoons of mix equal a 1.25 oz. pkg. of purchased taco seasoning mix. TIPS: Cumin, an herb, is ground from cumin seeds, and there is no substitute for its flavor.
