I guess spending 10 days in Florida will make me slack off on this blog and other household chores. The kids and I spent a nice long vacation in Florida with my mom and I guess I was so relaxed that when I got home I just couldn't get motivated to do anything! But now things are back on track and time to start sharing some recipes!
I was seeing a lot of homemade taco seasonings online and once I looked more into what was in the store bought version I wanted to at least try my own. The verdict-probably never buying store bought again. This is easy and would be great to try with my taco salad!
Homemade Taco Seasoning
adapted from Annie Eats
2 Tsp. Chili Powder
1 1/2 tsp. Paprika ( I used smoke and loved the extra flavor it adds)
1 1/2 tsp. Ground Cumin
1 tsp. Onion Powder
3/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp. Cayenne Pepper (This added just the right amount of heat, but if you want more heat add a little more)
I added about 1/4 tsp of salt, maybe even just a little less
Mix all together and add to browned ground beef (1 pound) Add 3/4 cup water and simmer till liquid is almost completely gone.
Since this was a hit I will be making a large batch of this and keeping it in a air tight container so it will be ready to go for our weekly taco night!
