Taco Seasoning

We *always* have some of this on hand, just as written. I got this from my friend Bethany, off my favorite homeschooling forums. I make this, sometimes double or triple and keep it in a quart sized pasta jar, 2 T = one packet of taco seasoning.  Try it, I bet you'll never buy the little packets again. Bethany's cooking blog is "For the Love of Grub" referenced on the right.



1/4 c. dried, minced onion
3 T. chili powder
2 T. cumin
1 t. salt
2 t. red pepper flakes
1 T. cornstarch
1/2 t. garlic powder
2 t. oregano

Mix all ingredients and place in lidded jar. Use 2 T per pound of meat. Makes 1/2 cup, enough for 4 pounds of meat.

Notes: Bethany makes her
taco meat in three pound increments and freeze one pound at a time in quart-sized bags, so she quadruples this recipe and put it in a jar. It’s more efficient to make a bunch than to make it often. So, I always have it handy for when I make a bunch of taco meat.
