TACO SEASONING


~ Food.com

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 two tablespoons per pound of meat, stirring in after meat has been cooked.

Makes about 3/4 cup.

Notes: You can cut back on the red pepper flakes if you think the amount called for will be too spicy for your taste. I use ground turkey/beef or shredded chicken/pork to make taco meat in 3-4 pound increments, then freeze one pound at a time in quart-sized bags. So I usually quadruple this recipe and put it in a jar. It’s more efficient to make a bunch than to make it often. I always skip the cornstarch.
