    Lance Pickup's Note:

    I reverse engineered store-bought taco seasoning because I use a lot of it and wanted a more natural mix. I like the way it tastes and the texture, although I will note the color and texture of store-bought mix is different, probably due to the fact that they add yellow corn flour to theirs, so you could add that in if you like. This recipe also has a "spiciness" knob. I like things really spicy, so you may want to tone it down. Just use less (or more!) Cayenne and Chipotle powder for a different amount of heat. This version is also considerably less salty than store-bought, so if you want yours saltier (or less saltier), adjust the amount of salt.
