Armed with a bunch of spices, some measuring spoons, a big mixing bowl, and my mother-in-law’s recipe, I set out to make up a long time family favorite. Taco Seasoning Mix!
We order enough beef to fill our deep freeze each year. When my husband and I got married and first started ordering beef the only thing I knew how to do with it was put in Hamburger Helper (deep cringe). After that I learned how to make tacos. The more I settle into my homemaker role the more I learn to do with a basic pound of hamburger, but this is still a family favorite.
Taco Seasoning Recipe:
1/4 C Dried Minced Onion
1/4 C Chili Powder
3 TBSP. Salt
4 tsp. Cornstarch
1 TBSP. Dried Minced Garlic
1 TBSP. Ground Cumin
1 TBSP. Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
2 tsp. Beef Bullion Granules
1.5 tsp. Dried Oregano
I mix it all up and store it in an air tight container in the fridge. Use 2 TBSP. of the mix in each pound of hamburger with 8oz tomato sauce. You can add a little water if it’s too thick.
Tip: Taco meat is easy to make up ahead of time and store in Ziploc bags in the freezer.
