Homemade taco seasoning mix

Tonight I planned on making beef tacos with homemade taco seasoning. Have you ever read the ingredients on those package mixes from the store? Take my advice and don’t even bother. It is not good. Make your own seasoning instead. We were going to have crunchy tacos, but then my husband found some burrito tortillas and had the idea to make gorditas. Gorditas are crunchy tacos inside of a soft taco. So good!

Ground Beef with Homemade Taco Seasoning

Sautee 1/2 a chopped onion and 2 cloves chopped garlic in a bit of oil in your hot pan. Take out the onions and brown a pound of meat. Once browned, take it out and strain it. Add it back in the pan with your onions and add your taco seasoning.

Seasoning- Of course, you can always add more of less of these ingredients. I am using real sautéed onions and garlic, but you could use ground onion and garlic if you have it.
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon corn starch

Add your seasoning to the beef and about 1/2 cup water over the heat until it absorbs, about 5 minutes

Add all your fixings to your Gordita…beans, cheese, lettuce, salsa, sour cream, guacamole; whatever you like!
