Taco Seasoning

1 T chilli powder
1½ t freshly ground cumin
1 t freshly ground coriander
1 t smoked paprika
1 t oregano
½ t garlic powder
½ t onion powder
½ t red pepper flakes, depending on how spicy your chilli powder is
1 t kosher salt
1½ t corn starch (optional)

First of all make sure your chilli powder is nothing but dried, ground chillis. Often they’ll sell you chilli powder that has many other additives in it. I like a nice hot chilli powder, and if it’s hot enough, will omit the red pepper flakes entirely.

Mix all ingredients together, adding the corn starch only if you want to have a thicker, saucier taco meat (you’ll have to add water as well to the taco meat for this to happen). Alternatively, you can make the spice mix and add in the corn starch to the meat separately.
