Just mix together all the ingredients and then measure out what you’re going to use. Store the leftover mixture in an airtight container.
This recipe makes 2 Tablespoons of taco seasoning. Most recipes call for one Tablespoon of taco seasoning, unless you’re doubling (or more) your recipe. Use 1 Tablespoon of this mixture per 1 one ounce package of seasoning that a recipe calls for.
If you’re making ground turkey or beef for tacos, use 1 Tablespoon of this seasoning per one pound of meat. After you brown and drain your meat, add 1/2 cup of water and 1 Tablespoon of the taco seasoning, stir and cook till the water is gone (maybe 5 minutes).
* If I’m making a soup or something that has other ingredients in it with a fair amount of salt, I like to leave the salt out of this recipe.
