Taco Seasoning Mix

2 tsp instant minced onion
1 tsp salt
1 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp corn starch
1/2 tsp crushed dried red pepper
1/2 tsp instant minced garlic
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp ground cumin

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl until evenly distributed.  Spoon mixture onto a 6-inch square of aluminum foil and fold to make airtight.  Label.  Store in a cool, dry place.  Use within 6 months.  Makes 1 package (about 2 tablespoons) taco seasoning mix.  To make additional packages, increase ingredient amounts proportionately.

Taco Filling

1 lb ground beef  (browned)

add:
1/2 c. water
1pkg taco seasoning mix (from above)

Simmer for a few minutes in a skillet stirring occasionally.  Makes filling for 8-10 tacos.

It seems like I am always forgetting to buy this at the store.   I stumbled upon this recipe, and I make a big batch of it whenever I need it.  It is handy to have in emergencies or if you just want to save money making your own mixes!

    I am always running out of this, but never thought about making it on my own. Thanks for the recipe!

    I really enjoy the taco seasoning from the bins at Winco. It’s so super cheap compared to the little packets almost $1 each in the grocery store. I just keep it in a quart jar in my cupboard.
