This is the one I use instead of buying a "mix" and it tastes great. I
don't like to buy mixes when I have all the spices already, and using
them frequently means they're fresh.

Taco Seasoning:

1 Tablespoon Red Chili Powder
1 teaspoon Paprika
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Cumin
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon Oregano
2 teaspoons Onion Powder
1 teaspoon Sugar.

Combine and store in airtight container. Equals one regular package
"taco seasoning"
I brown my meat and toss the spices in with a splash of water and cook
for a few minutes.
