Make Your Own Monday...Taco Seasoning!

I've been making my own taco seasoning for quite awhile now. It's SO simple and I prefer the taste over the pre-packaged kinds. Plus I know exactly what's in it, no added salt or msg, or any other funky chemicals I can't pronounce. My sister makes a different version, I haven't tried hers yet. I'm going to include both of ours and a couple other versions I've come across for you to try out.

Brittany's Taco Seasoning
6 tsp Chili Powder
5 tsp Paprika
4 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
2 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
2 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 1/2 tsp Cornstarch
1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper

Just mix everything together and store in an airtight container I use an old spice container (one of the taller ones). 2 tbsp plus 1 tsp equals 1 packet of seasoning. This recipe makes 3 "batches" you can multiply it to make more if you wish.

Kayla's Taco Seasoning
1 Tbsp Chili Powder
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Onion Powder
1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 tsp Dried Oregano
1/2 tsp Paprika
1 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Black Pepper

Kayla said she just mixes everything together and then just sprinkles some on the meat to taste.
