It's taco night and I don't have a kit, OH NO!!!! No problem! My sister-in-law makes her own taco seasoning, so I go searching. Unfortunately, I couldn't find hers, but I did find one I had all the spices for, so doesn't hurt to try right? The kids declared it a success and hubby said it was better than the mix in the kit (just like the taco sauce). No more taco kits in this house.
Simply mix together:
1 tbsp. chili powder
2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. each ground cumin, garlic powder, paprika, powdered oregano and sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
Once you've browned and drained your hamburger, add your homemade taco seasoning and 3/4 cup water. Mix it up and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes. Then serve with your favorite taco fixings.
