Ready In

"I always increase this recipe 10x and keep in a glass jar tightly covered in my fridge to have ready for recipes, if you like lots of heat then adjust the cayenne pepper to taste or you may omit completely and don't save this mix to use only for tacos, add some in your recipes to kick up the flavor, I use this mix for both #recipe11978 AND #recipe12949 it's even great in chili, ground beef mixture for casseroles, stew, soups, and add some into you hamburger mixture for burgers, even meatballs, this also makes a great gift for the cook on your list just increase amounts and present in a fancy glass jar"

Store tighty sealed in a small glass jar until ready to use (I store mine and all spices in the refrigerator).

Step 3

**NOTE** this is only optional, if using the mix for tacos you might want to add in some flour into the seasoned cooked ground beef to thicken, I also add in about 1-1/2 cups tomato sauce and simmer, stirring for 20 minutes over low heat.

Thanks for posting this. It has become my "go to" recipe for taco mix. I would beg to differ in the strength of it though... I would say this is enough for 2 pounds of ground beef. One pound would be pretty strong! I haven't found powdered tomato yet but have been very pleased when I add a can of tomato sauce when simmering it with the beef. (I use 2 Tbs of mix and 8 oz of tomato sauce per one pound of beef)
