Taco seasoning remixed

1 Cup Chili Powder
4 TBS Cumin
3 TBS larger grain salt
2 TBS Pepper
2 TBS Paprika
1/2 TBS oregano 

Throw everything into a mason jar and shake until blended. :)

use 2-3TBS per pound of ground meat or "meat" mixture with 1/4 cup water.

NOTE: If you don't use fresh garlic and onions when you make tacos I would suggest putting in 4TBS Garlic powder and 1/2 cup onion powder.
