canned taco seasoning

Really, the only thing that makes this 'canned' is that it's in a canning jar. It doesn't even have to be in a canning jar... so it's really just homemade taco seasoning.

I found a similar recipe for taco seasoning awhile back on a random message board. I didn't even mean to print it out, but printed something else out and it came with it. Divine printing. I've tweeked it just a bit.

Homemade Taco Seasoning

1/2 C flour

1/2 C Onion Powder
2 t garlic powder
4 T chili powder (more or less for the amount of spice you want in your life)
1 Tbs dried oregano
1 tsp ground cumin
1 Tbs table salt

Mix well. Use 6T per 1 pound of ground meat and 1/4 c (+ if needed-depending on the fat content/wetness of your meat) water and cook until meat is done in frying pan.

I made this up in July, but it wasn't until last week that I actually tried it out. I was very pleasantly surprised. The kids all liked it too. I think we preferred it over store bough. See, divine printing.

Mmmm... I need to make this. I grew up on Mexican food and my mom and grandma always made their own seasonings. Sadly, I never learned their recipes before they passed away. Thank you for sharing this, Beth!

If it's in a canning jar we will take it!!! :) Once you make the investment in the jars it's great to know other options you have for them when their isn't food inside of them.

Thanks so much for this! I am out of taco seasoning and this is better than store bought which contains MSG.
