Taco Seasoning Mix

Taco Seasoning Mix

recipe from Just A Pinch.com / Sandy Johnson

Note: I added a little water in and cooked it down , my meat was kind of dry but with water it turned out perfect..I think I added maybe 1/2 C or so. This is DELICIOUS thank you Sandy

2 tsp dehydrated onions
1 tsp salt
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp corn starch
1/2 tsp dehydrated red pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp oregano, powdered
1/2 tsp cumin

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.
This is equivalent to one package of taco seasoning and will season one pound ground beef for tacos.
