Homemade Taco Seasoning

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Kozmic Blues

This recipe is perfect for seasoning 1 lb of ground beef, or the equivalent of 1 lb of vegetarian "ground beef" I prefer this to the packages the sell at the supermarkets which often contain too much sodium. This mixture is also nice mixed with 16 oz of sour cream to serve with tortilla chips, or to top a layered Mexican dip.

Fast, easy and wonderful. I skipped the cayenne pepper this time because I do not like very spicy food and wasn't sure on the heat of this. Will make often because it is easier than trying to find the taco seasonings and I like knowing what's in a package!!
