Taco Seasoning

I was talking with my mom the other day about making taco seasoning.  She saw a recipe in the New Orleans newspaper for it, and suggested I try making my own.  Tacos were always one of my “lazy” foods.  Buy a box kit and make it, voila.  But I decided to give it a try just to see how easy it was.  I perused a few different recipes online, basically seeing what the common denominators were, then set forth to make my own.  I must say, it was pretty delicious!  We like our tacos a little spicy, so mine had kick :)

Christen’s Taco Seasoning


1/4 tsp cayenne
1 tbsp chili powder
1/4 tsp dehydrated chopped onion
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp ground oregano
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp dried cilantro
1/2 tsp creole seasoning
1 tsp flour
1.5 tsp cumin
few shakes of black pepper


Mix well.  Brown ground beef then drain the fat off.  Add these seasonings (3 tbsp which is approximately what this makes) with 2/3 cup water.  Simmer over low heat 5-10 minutes.
