Freshly made taco seasoning, without msg and preservatives, tastes so much better. Use about 2 tablespoons of seasoning per pound of ground meat for tacos.

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder I prefer chipotle chili powder or ancho chili powder, but New Mexican chili powder would be delicious, too.

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
