To make your own seasoning, you'll need a handful of spices that you probably already have. Nothing funky here. Just chili powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, paprika, cumin, and onion powder. See, told you nothing too funky. Mix it all together, store in mason jar and you are good to go. Here is a tip - if you are planning on making this in bulk, Costco has the best prices on spices in large quantities. Trust me, you don't want to have to buy five or six of those little spice container from the store. One, they are expensive and two, it's just silly. And wasteful. Okay, that was three reasons. Two tablespoons and half a cup of water will season one pound of ground beef. You don't just have to limit this to ground beef thought. You can use it on shredded chicken, marinade for fajitas or even in your favorite enchiladas. It's even great on shrimp! Just think of all the things you can use it for. Even better, it makes a great gift! Simple. Easy. Delicious. It doesn't get much better than that.
