Once you know how to blend your own easy taco spice, you will never go back to shop bought. Making your own allows you to play with spiciness and flavours until you get it perfect for your eaters.
For those of you who do not have paprika allergies in the house, you can add a tablespoon of paprika or smoked paprika to the mix. This will add taste and colour.
Use as you would taco spice. I use 2 tablespoons per 500g beef mince.
Needed a paprika free Taco recipe so looked around the net and blended a few ideas and left out the paprika. I had salt in it first time but I think the other ingrdients added enough salt for me so am omitting it from now on. - 01 Jul 2011
