Time for Tacos !!!

January 2, 2010

and a very FRUGAL way to make them....

I know this is COMPLETE randomness, but it is so good, I have to slip this post in my regular (sort of) random routine for a quick FRUGAL tip.

We had to make taco meat today for a family function, and it reminded me of this tidbit I has stashed for future blog material.

No better time than the present, right?

(disclaimer: I have not personally tried this YET, but I definitely plan to)

If you find the pantry is out of taco seasoning packets, OR better yet, you want to utilize this recipe for a WAY frugal way to make tacos from now on, make up a quadrupiled size batch and use as needed.

Taco seasoning:

(stir together)

4 tsp chili powder

1 TBSP onion powder

2 tsp garlic powder

1 TBSP ground cumin

2 tsp paprika

2 tsp ground oregano

1 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp salt

Use 2 TBSP of seasoning per pound of ground beef (or chicken or turkey) however you like YOUR tacos.

How easy, convenient and FRUGAL is that???

(next up, I promise the PERFECT handmade FRUGAL idea for gift giving!!!!)

You will NOT want to miss it.  🙂
