Taco Seasoning

Making your own taco seasoning is easy, cheap, and healthier.  Buy the spices in bulk and use a pint-sized mason jar.  Folks tell me it tastes pretty darn good!

Taco Seasoning
4 T chili powder
2 T onion powder
2 T garlic powder
2 T cumin powder
1 T brown sugar
1 T cornstarch (helps keep the mixture from caking and thickens stuff a bit when you put the spice mix on your taco meat)
4 tsp salt
4 tsp paprika
4 tsp oregano
3 tsp red pepper flakes

As I said above, I like to put everything in a pint-sized mason jar and shake the heck out of it.  I use about 1-2 T of the mix for about a pound of meat.
