Homemade Taco Seasoning

If your family is anything like mine, we LOVE taco's and mexican food! Here is a recipe that is much more economical than the taco seasoning packets. Each taco seasoning packet at the grocery store costs between .99 cents to $1.59. Each packet holds about 2 TBS which seasons 1 pound of ground meat. This equals to about .59-.79 cents per TBS. By making it yourself, it costs between .06-.10 cents per TBS. Not bad! And, it tastes fabulous!!

Taco Seasoning Recipe

Large batch (about 3 cups/48 TBS)

1 cup dehydrated onions
1 cup chili powder
4 TBS salt
16 tsp cornstarch
4 TBS dried garlic, minced
4 TBS cumin
4 TBS red pepper flakes, crushed (optional)
8 tsp beef bouillon granules
6 tsp dried oregano

Combine the ingredients. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 1 year.

Add 2 TBS mix to 1 lb cooked and drained beef and 1/3-1/2 cup water and cook until done.

To make tacos even faster, use canned hamburger. I will post at a later time how to can ground meat. Dinner in less than 5 minutes!!
