Homemade Taco Seasoning

I mentioned yesterday I would be making tacos today.  I just wanted to share my seasoning recipe.  This is a spicy version and I like to add salsa or tomato juice to add even more flavor.  I used ground beef but if you prefer chicken or pork just adjust to your tastes.

Taco Seasoning

  • 1 Tbs cumin seed
  • 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1 tsp mexican oregano
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne

In mortar mix together all ingredients; make sure cumin seeds have been slightly crushed.

Add to 1 pound cooked ground beef.  Add 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup salsa or tomato juice.  Stir in beans and any other desired ingredients.  I used the beans and olives leftover from the layered dip I made yesterday.  Corn relish or jalapeno would make a nice addition too.  Add additional salt and pepper if desired;  I did add a little more salt to mine.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
