Taco Seasoning Mix

We love tacos at our house, and nothing fits the bill better than a homemade mix for the seasoning. I've tried several and this find is a keeper. If you have snack size bags you can make up several batches at a time and label for a later date. You can also make up the taco meat ahead of time and freeze, a great time saver when everyone is hungry. And the best thing of all is you can adjust the heat to your liking. My son isn't too fond of the spicy stuff like others in the family, and you just can't adjust a packaged envelope mix without compromising some of the flavor. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Taco Seasoning Mix

2t. dry minced onion
1 t. chili powder  (or to taste)
1/2 t. dried red pepper crushed (opt. or to taste)

1/2 t garlic
1/2- 1 t. ground cumin
