lawry's taco spice & seasoning

Whenever I have a recipe that calls for an envelope of taco seasoning mix I always use this instead. It is amazing and so much better for you than those store bought packs.

Lawry's Taco Spice & Seasoning

(Equivalent of 1 oz package of taco seasoning mix. To make a large batch use the measurements in parentheses. Guide is 4 tsp for 1 lb of ground meat.)

1 tsp chili powder (8 tsp)
1 tsp paprika (8 tsp)
3/4 tsp salt (6 tsp)
3/4 tsp dried minced onion (6 tsp)
1/2 tsp cumin (4 tsp)
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (2 tsp)
1/4 tsp garlic powder (2 tsp)
1/8 tsp oregano (1 tsp)

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.

To use this for taco meat:
In a large skillet, brown 1 lb ground beef until crumbly; drain fat. Add spice and 2/3 cup water; mix thoroughly. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and cook uncovered, 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until most of the liquid has cooked off.

I originally found this recipe HERE. It is actually a modification from one of Todd Wilbur’s Top Secret Recipes.
