I had a taste for my Creamy Taco Mac one day, but realized I didn't have the taco seasoning that it called for. So we had hot dogs instead :( Then I found this Taco Seasoning recipe from Annie's Eats. What a great idea! So I decided to make a batch in case I find the need again for some taco seasoning. Because, frankly, I'd hate to make a trip to the grocery store just to buy taco seasoning.
4 Tbsp. chili powder
3 Tbsp. ground cumin
3 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. paprika
1 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1) Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until well incorporated. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.
*Two heaping tablespoons replaces a package of taco seasoning
**To make taco meat, cook 1 lb. of meat with taco seasoning and 1 cup of water. Simmer until liquid is almost completely evaporated.
