Taco Seasoning

This is just perfect to season ground turkey for tacos or a sour cream mix for taco dip!  Try it, you’ll never go back to a packaged taco seasoning again.

    Prep Time: 10 minutes
    Total Time: 10 minutes
    Ease of Preparation: Easy

  2 tablespoon chili powder
  1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  1 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  2 teaspoons ground cumin
  2 teaspoons paprika
  1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Put all ingredients in a small bowl and mix thoroughly.

Tips & Tricks
Tip: For Dip: mix 2 tablespoons with 1 cup of fat free sour cream chill for about 1 hour before serving to let the flavors develop.
For Tacos: brown 1-1¼ lbs of ground meat or protein (preferably 93% lean) add 2/3 cup of water and ¼ cup of taco seasoning (all of above mix).  Let this simmer until most of the liquid is gone (5 minutes) and serve with your favorite taco fixings.
