Taco Seasoning Mix


2 teaspoons instant minced onion
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon crushed dried red pepper
1/2 teaspoon instant minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Mix all ingredients together well. Store in tightly sealed bag or container. TO MAKE TACO FILLING: Brown 1-1/2 lb. lean ground beef in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Drain excess fat. Add 1/2 cup water and 2 tablespoons of Taco Seasoning Mix. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Makes filling for 8 to 10 tacos.
Yield: About 2 tablespoons mix, equal to 1 average package. (This recipe multiplies well, but should be used within 6 months.)
