Whip up your own taco seasoning in just a minute or two with chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, dried oregano, paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper. It tastes so much better than the pre-packaged taco seasonings from the store.

Use about 1-2 tablespoons of this taco seasoning for each pound of meat. Of course, the amount of seasoning will vary depending on your personal preference. Add about 1/4 cup water to the skillet with the seasoning and meat, then let it simmer until thickened.
