If you have never made your own Taco Seasoning, now's your chance. It is SO good and So easy! We make several pre-portioned amounts and put in Ziploc bags for easy storage. The other best part about this seasoning is that you can get almost ALL of these spices at Walmart in their .50 spice section. Spices are VERY important to have in your food storage, so stock up at a really great deal!
4-6 tsp. instant minced onion
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cornstarch
½ tsp. crushed dried red pepper (cayenne)
½ tsp. minced garlic (OR 1/8 tsp. garlic powder)
¼ tsp. dried oregano
½ tsp. ground cumin
1/8 tsp. pepper
Seal tightly in small Ziploc bags. Store in a cool dry place.
Once you have put together your taco seasoning, then add the following to your meat for AWESOME tacos, taco salad or burritos!!
2 lbs. Lean ground beef
2 -8 ounce cans tomato sauce
1 package Taco seasoning (see above or use 2 T. premade Taco Seasoning)
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
3 Tbsp. sour cream
Brown the ground beef and drain off grease. Add tomato sauce, taco seasoning, and brown sugar. Simmer 10 minutes. Stir in sour cream. Serve immediately. YUM!!
