With warmer weather we eat tacos more frequently. They are an easy stove top meal that I like to make even easier by preparing a large batch of taco meat and then freezing it for later use.
Some packaged taco seasonings contain gluten. Homemade taco seasoning is easy, economical, gluten free, and the spice can be adjusted to your taste. Mix up a batch (or a double batch) and keep it on hand for a quick and easy meal.
This recipe is pretty mild, which is the way we like it. Feel free to add red pepper flakes to spice it up!
- 2 Tablespoons chili powder
- 1 Tablespoon cumin
- 1 Tablespoon oregano
- 1 Tablespoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- Combine all ingredients and store in an air tight container.
- To use, add 1 Tablespoon (or more if you like) per one pound of cooked and drained ground beef or shredded chicken along with about 1/4 cup of water. Simmer for 5 minutes.
