My Taco Seasoning Recipe

Bastardized, amalgamated, condensed, refined, and now, someplace I can find it.

5 tbsp chili powder
.5 tsp garlic powder
.5 tsp onion powder
.5 tsp red pepper flakes
.5 tsp oregano
1 tsp paprika (today, I'm going to try smoky paprika. I have 4 kinds now.)
1 tbsp ground cumin
2 tsp salt
.5 tsp beef bullion (no MSG, as the point of this is not to have the MSG in taco seasoning, for me)
1.5 tsp cornstarch
1 tbsp pepper
1/8-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp sugar (rounds out the flavors, I've decided)

I shake up and store the spices in a little jar. Add 2 tbsp per pound of ground meat (we do turkey or chicken, not beef), and 1/3 cup of H20. Simmer until water is gone. Taco meat!

Though, this is for later. Tonight we're having veggie enchiladas. Tomorrow chicken paprikash. Lunchly leftovers all week, mmmm...
