Taco Night Seasoning


Servings: Recipe as listed seasons 1 lb of ground beef. Scale as needed.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

  • 1 tsp ancho chile powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin ground
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Mexican oregano (Regular oregano will do too.)
  • 1/2 tsp coriander ground
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper (About 10 or so turns of the mill.)

  • Instructions:

    Combine it all and store in an air-tight contianer until ready to use (as easy as tearing the top off a packet, huh?).

    If you're using your seasoning for ground beef - Add 1 lb ground beef to a hot skillet (cast-iron is best) over medium-high heat. Spread the beef out in the skillet so as to maximize surface area. Sprinkle the seasoning over the beef, and let all cook untouched for 3 - 4 minutes. Beat the crud out of the beef with the blade-end of a metal turner to crumble, and then add 1/2 cup of your favorite beer (or water if you must teetotale) to deglaze the pan. Turn your heat to medium low and let simmer for 5 - 7 minutes or until most of the liquid has cooked off. While the mixture's simmering, continue to crumble the beef with your turner to a desired texture. Drain off any unwanted grease and keep warm until ready to serve.


    Seasoning is also swell on chicken, fish, and shrimp. Simply sprinkle-on to taste before pan-frying or grilling.
    If you wanna scale-up and make a bunch of seasoning ahead of time, you'll need to use 2 Tbsps per pound of ground beef. Make sure to give your container a good shake before spooning your seasoning out.
