Homemade Taco Seasonings

Here's a couple of the seasoning mixes we enjoy.

Taco Seasoning

1/4 cup dried onion flakes (I used the blender and chopped these fine. No big bites of onion for me!)
4 tsp cornstarch
4 Tbsp. chili powder
3 tsp ground cumin
3 tsp garlic salt
2 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 tsp beef bouillon
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano

Mix well and store in an airtight container.

To use: Add 1/4 cup spice to 1 1/2 pound hamburger and 1/2 cup water or so. Mix well and cook until most of the water has evaporated. I add a little extra water when cooking beef for taco salad, leaving the meat saucy, so it covers the greens like a dressing. YUM! No more dry taco salad!


We use this version now. I measure this out into a quart jar. It has just enough room to shake the spices to blend them up, and I store it in there, too

1 cup dried onion flakes
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup chili powder
1/4 cup ground cumin
1/4 cup garlic powder
1/4 cup red pepper flakes
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 Tbsp dried oregano
