Homemade for half the price of the off-the-shelf stuff. Just made this for dinner, it tasted great albeit a bit spicy (just how I like it). The cornstarch is to make it a thick consistency, you can add more or less depending on how you like it. Feel free to leave the salt out for a sodium free alternative, it'll still taste great.
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder or 1⁄4 teaspoon granulated garlic
- 1⁄4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried oregano
- Mix all ingredients together (and store in an airtight spice container if you make extra. I usually make 3 batches, use 1 and the store the other 2. It should fit nicely in a 3.5 oz jar).
- Brown 1 lb ground beef in frying pan.
- Pour in seasoning (If you've made more than one batch use 10.5 tsp [3.5 Tbsp]).
- Add 3/4 cup of water.
- Stir on high flame till thick and evenly mixed (approximately 2 mins).
- Serve with you favorite tacos, taco sauce, and diced garden veggies.
Easy and cheap - tastes just like store-bought and I can tone down the spice for wimpy DH. Made for PAC 14.
