This is a money saving recipe for sure, however, it is a good way to make a taco seasoning that you can adjust to your family's heat preference.
A packet of taco seasoning can cost about $1, that doesn't seem like much, however, add several of these $1 packets into the grocery cart and the bill starts to add up. Especially considering that you most likely have all these seasonings in your pantry.
There are a few reasons why you would want DIY Taco Seasoning-
1. you can adjust the sodium
2. you can cut out all the chemicals, preservatives
3. you can make a big batch and store in a glass container in your pantry, ready to go
4. you can adjust to your family taste preference

1 1/2 Teaspoons ground Cumin

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Combine the spices together in a bowl. Add to your cooked ground meat as needed. One recipe will make enough seasoning for 1 1/2 lbs of ground meat.
