A few months ago I started making my own taco seasoning instead of using the premade one from the store. I usually kind of just test and see what tastes good but this is what I start with, try it and then add some more spices if you want it spicier
– 3 pounds 93% ground beef (you need about a pound for the tacos but I make three and put it in the refrigerator for future meals.
– 5 tablespoons chili powder
– 3 teaspoons paprika powder
– 4 tablespoons cumin (I love cumin, one of my favorite spices. Is it weird to have a favorite spice? Oh well, I’m weird so that’s okay)
– 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 2 teaspoons sugar
– 2 teaspoons oregano
– 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
– 1 deciliter water
1. Put the ground beef into a large skillet and try to make the meat into as small pieces as possible.
2. While the meat is being browned, mix the taco seasoning.
3. Mix the chili powder, paprika powder, cumin, salt, sugar, oregano, cayenne pepper together in a small bowl.
4. Add the spice mixture and the water to the meal, mix well.
5. The meat is done when the water is gone.
