Homemade Taco Seasoning

Yay, it is Mexican Monday. In all honesty, I could have Mexican Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday...etc. if only my family would submit to my Mexican food addiction. Tonight was something quick and easy--Tacos! I was out of taco seasoning, but I have been having a love affair with Pinterest lately, and I remembered I pinned a taco seasoning recipe. So, I did the Mexican Sombrero Hat dance and made my own seasoning.  Okay, I might have skipped the dance part, but my tastes buds were probably dancing for spicy joy. Wow, Pinterest, you rock in so many ways! Tonight's dinner was served on Cobalt Fiesta.

Taco Seasoning
4 Tbsp Chili Powder
3 Tbsp plus 1 tsp paprika
3 Tbsp ground cumin
1 Tbsp plus 2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Combine all of the spices. Then, to make a 1 pound batch of seasoned meat you will use 2 heaping tablespoons of the seasoning and 1 cup of water. This equals what one package would give you.

Thank you for posting this! I ALWAYS think I have taco seasoning, then go to the cupboard and can't find any, when I'm already up to my elbows in taco fixins! (It actually happened again Sunday night, so you're one day late for me this time--but I'm certain it will happen again!)
