Taco seasoning recipe

Free of: Gluten, Dairy, Soy, Corn
I think everyone knows how to make tacos.  Take a pound of meat, crumble, and brown it in a skillet.  Add your seasoning, a little water if you want, and you are ready to heat up your taco shells and eat.

We are the kind of family that likes to use two meats, turkey and sausage, or buffalo (it used to be beef, before I found out about allergies) and sausage.

The one thing I do, is make my own taco seasoning.  I didn't do this because I had an abundance of time.  I did this again because of allergies.  Many of the packets contain hidden corn ingredients.  I got this from somewhere... but I can't remember where. Sorry I can't give the proper credit here.

Taco Seasoning:

1 Tablespoon chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper

Mix all together and store in an airtight container.

*When I was on the Feingold Diet, we omitted the chili powder, cayenne pepper, and paprika, and added ground fennel.  Luckily, my kids still liked the tacos with that mixture.
