Taco Seasoning

I was reading taco seasoning recipes a few weeks ago. The one(s) I’ve been using are good, but the chili powder doesn’t always agree with our stomachs, so I was looking for ideas.

One caught my eye — a seasoning that had paprika as the primary ingredient, not chili powder. I found a few more like it, played around with amounts, and came up with this recipe.

Taco Seasoning


  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 1 Tbsp dried onion
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper


  • 1-1/4 lbs ground beef or turkey
  • 2 Tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup dry wine (red or white)

Blend the seasoning ingredients together.

Brown the ground meat in oil over medium high heat. Add the seasoning mix, stock, and wine. Stir to blend. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring every 5 minutes, until thick.
