The intention here is to make a low-sodium substitute for the Taco Seasoning Mix packets you can buy in the store. The instructions usually call for a can of diced tomatos, two pounds of ground beef, and the contents of the packet. (Brown the meat, add the seasonings as you go, then add the tomatos when it's all brown and bring it to a boil.) I've been using tomato sauce instead of the chunks. You need the tomato (sauce) because it adds a little sweetness to balance the spice.
Makes 6 TB. Use 1 tsp ~ 1 TB per pound.
