One night for dinner my husand wanted me to make nachos. I had everything for it, but no taco seasoning for the meat. So, I started playing around with my spices and I came up with this recipe. And, he loved it. And now, I don't ever buy prepared taco seasoning mixes any more.

    Combine all and store in an air tight container until needed. Occaisionally, I like to add 1-2 tsps of Chipotle chii Powder to it as well. Also, if 1 tsp of Cayenne pepper is not hot enough for you add more. Otherwise, if it is too hot, you can use 1/2 tsp for medium and 1/4 tsp for mild.
