Ingredients

  • ΒΌ cup chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons cumin
  • 2 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoons cayenne, to taste

Instructions

  1. Add all of the spices to a small jar and shake well to combine.
  2. Store tightly covered in your spice cabinet.
  3. Use 3 tablespoons per 1 pound of ground + 2 tablespoons of water to make taco meat.

Notes

Feel free to adjust the spices to your tastes. We use closer to 1 teaspoon of cayenne for spicier tacos. Chipotle powder is a nice swap from cayenne as it adds a little heat with a bit of a smoky flavor.

Regular paprika may be swapped for smoked paprika.

Mexican oregano is preferred to regular, but both work.
