1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika (or smoked paprika)
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
pinch of red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper, optional


1.Mix all the spices together in a bowl. Use immediately or store in an airtight container.
2.You can easily double, triple or quadruple this recipe to make a larger batch. Then, in the future just use two tablespoons of your taco seasoning mix per one pound of ground beef.
3.I don't add any onion powder to this mix because I typically add freshly diced onions to ground beef recipes. But feel free to add that spice as well, if you'd like.
