Taco Seasoning

So here is my recipe for Taco Seasoning. I make this all the time and usually use seed version and grind in my spice grinder (coffee grinder) or you can grind with mortal and pestle.


2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons hot smoked paprika
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Mix all above together and add to your recipe (I will be posting some here in the near future).

You can also store this in an air tight container for a month or so.
