What do you do when tacos are on the menu for dinner, you go to grab your taco seasoning packet from the cupboard, and find not one single packet there waiting for you? When it’s 5:00 pm, and the thought of taking three kids to the grocery store for one little seasoning packet is the worst imaginable torture??
Of course there is no one recipe that you have all of the ingredients to and so you mix a few together and add a couple of extra things to make up for it.
And that’s how this recipe was born.
1 Tbsp. McCormick chili powder, (or any brand will do)
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp McCormick onion powder
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp celery salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp dried McCormick dried parsley flakes
1/4 tsp dried basil flakes
Mix all ingredients together. To make a taco beef mixture, brown one pound of ground beef and add 2 Tbsp of the taco seasoning mixture with 1/2 cup of water. Simmer the meat to combine flavors.
