Best Ever Taco Seasoning

Oh my goodness, I will never buy taco seasoning again! This is soooo fantastic and doesn’t have the preservatives and sodium you find in the store bought packets. I started with Alton Brown’s Taco Potion #19 recipe but eliminated the salt and added garlic powder, onion powder, and brown sugar (which I think really brings out the flavors):

2 T chili powder
1 T cumin
2 tsp cornstarch
2 tsp onion powder
1-1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Mix well and store in a container (you can easily double the recipe). Cooking instructions: Brown ground beef. Drain. Add 2 heaping tablespoons of seasoning to 1 pound of meat with 3/4 cup water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium low, stirring occasionally until thickened. You can add more seasoning to taste as well as salt if desired….I added 1 tsp of sea salt.
