Homemade Taco Seasoning


2 Tbsp Chili powder

5 tsp paprika 

4 1/2 tsp ground cumin

3 tsp onion powder

2 tsp sea salt

2 1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

Additional Ingredients:

1 pound grass fed ground beef, or bison.

12 Organic Blue Corn Taco Shells

Butter leaf lettuce chopped

Organic Colby Jack cheese freshly shredded.

3/4 cup water, if using bison. (Bison is less greasier than beef so add water to help mix the seasoning throughout the meat, or if you like to drain your beef of its juices add the water in place of the missing liquid.)


1. In a bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 6 months. 

2. In a large skillet, cook beef or bison over medium heat until no longer pink, drain if desired and add water. Add 8 tsp seasoning mix. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered for 10 minutes. 

3. Fill taco shells with meat, lettuce and cheese and enjoy.
