Just when we wanted to have tacos for dinner I realized we had no seasoning. Thankfully I found this on the ‘Net, submitted by Bill Echols. It certainly beats buying that packaged stuff and is simple to make as needed. I used the whole amount on 700 grams of beef, which I had precooked with some chopped onion and garlic instead of using onion and garlic salt. We try to limit salt intake…..
1 T chili powder (I used pepper flakes)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (I used chopped garlic in the meat)
1/4 teaspoon onion powder (I used chopped onions in the meat)
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon black pepper
If you just use the spices and not the chopped onion and garlic while cooking the beef, store the spice mixture in an airtight container until you want to use it.

Good to know! Love the reduced salt idea.
Hi Reg, this is great to know as I often do not have taco seasonings on hand so this will be a great help. cheers Ellie
Yeah I am often without the package as they don’t always have it here…
