Taco Seasoning Mix


4 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons ground cumin
4 teaspoons flour
3 teaspoons kosher salt
3 teaspoons smoked paprika
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper


Combine ingredients in a small container and shake to combine. I used a clean 1 pint cottage cheese container. Store for up to 1 month.

To use, break up a pound of ground beef in a wide skillet over medium heat. When the meat starts to sizzle, sprinkle a tablespoon or two over the meat and continue stirring.

As the moisture from the meat cooks out and simmers, it will be thickened by the flour.

Note, you can vary the amount of salt to your taste. I tried this with 4 teaspoons of salt an thought it was too much. You mileage may vary.
