Taco Seasoning

I don't know if you know this, but taco seasoning is the most versatile seasoning mix ever.  No really. Ever.  My mom makes shepherd's pie with it, I make fajitas with it, you can make meatloaf with it...pretty much anything with meat, taco seasoning will make better.

If you want to be lazy, you can buy it for about 99 cents a package at the grocery store, but then you have to deal with the "what IS natural flavoring" conversation in your head. 

Side Note: WHAT IS NATURAL FLAVORING????? $100 if someone can tell me. All I know is it's not natural, and I don't know what flavor it is, and therefore it freaks me out.

To just avoid that whole scenario, I like to keep a homemade version on hand.  The flavors are much richer, and I can genuinely take credit for every aspect of a dish when compliments oooobviously come rolling in about my seasoning abilities.

Taco Seasoning
1 Tbsp Chili Powder
1 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 tsp Paprika
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Onion Powder
1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 tsp Oregano

Use about 3 tablespoons per pound of meat
