Super Easy Homemade Taco Seasoning!

Yummy, yummy taco meat
Oh so tasty, good to eat!
Serve it in a taco shell
Tastier than Taco Bell!

You like my little poem? I just made it up.

So, tacos are awesome right? Right. But homemade tacos are always better.  Here's how you can make super tasty  taco seasoning yourself so you can have delicious restaurant-quality tacos anytime!

1 tablespoon of chili powder
1 tablespoon of paprika
1 tablespoon of ground cumin
1 tablespoon of salt
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes

Combine all ingredients in a bowl.

Ready to cook?
Brown a pound of ground turkey, beef or chicken in a skillet.
Drain off the grease after cooking, return to skillet and return meat to heat.
Add seasoning to ground meat with 1/4 cup (4 tbs) of water.
Mix well and remove from heat.

Not ready to cook?
Store seasoning in an air-tight container or Ziploc bag.
Or... rub it on your face. It's a great exfoliant*.

* = don't do that.
