Did you know you can make your own taco seasoning? You know, the kind you buy in the little 4" x 5" sealed envelope?
I've had and used this recipe for so long I don't remember where I got it.
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
2-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
4-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
5 teaspoons paprika
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon salt
Mix all ingredients together and store in an air-tight jar. Use 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons of mixture for every pound of ground beef.
I think it tastes every bit as good as the purchased taco seasoning. It's very simple to mix together, stores well, is cheaper than purchasing it at the grocery store and you eliminate the packaging involved for each serving.
