Combine all ingredients except water into a snack size zip lock baggie or baby food jar. Shake to combine. Use desired amount into ground beef or beans until you reach the flavor intensity of your liking.
*I use almost all of the seasoning in 1# of ground beef mixed with 2 cans of strained and rinsed black beans.
After several tries, this homemade taco seasoning has deemed itself to be our favorite!
