My family loves taco night, but have you ever planned a taco night and then realized that you didn’t have a taco seasoning packet on hand? That happened to me last night as my ground beef was browning on the stovetop. I panicked when I pulled out that little packet that I thought was taco seasoning and realized it was actually onion soup mix. Well, that just will not do. I debated running to the Dollar General Store down the street to get some and then started rummaging through my spices. I had a very good base to make my own mix. You can improvise with what you have on hand, but these spices are really pretty cheap. I picked most of them up at Dollar General for $1 and now I am set on Taco Seasoning for awhile. Hallelujah! Add or subtract spices that you love or don’t love. The cornstarch acts as a thickener when you simmer the meat and seasonings in water, but if you don’t have corn starch, don’t add very much (if any) water. Here is my (sound of record scratching) Taco Seasoning BREEEEEE-MIX!
