I love a good taco seasoning; however, I don’t like all the extra chemicals you get when you buy the premixes at the grocers. I was making a new batch of this seasoning this morning, and I thought I would post it. This recipe contains all the usual suspects for a good spicy taco seasoning. Once you make a batch, you’ll want to adjust the spices to your own personal tastes. These amounts are based on what I like to see in a spicy taco seasoning. It’s got a kick, but I wouldn’t call it overly hot… Note: this is primarily for ground beef. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

    Chef's Note: Some people will add cornstarch or arrowroot to their seasoning mix. The idea is to have a bit of a thickener in the dry spice when you use it. In my opinion, if I want a taco spice that includes a thickener... I'll add it when I'm cooking... NOT to the dry spice mix.
