Instead of buying packets of taco seasoning at the store, you can make your own with common spice cabinet ingredients. Not only does it cut down on cabinet clutter, it's less expensive, too. Makes 2 tablespoons, enough to season 1 pound of ground beef. This tastes the same but without the telltale orange color. If you want that, add a little paprika. Use less salt for a low-sodium version. By Jennifer Graue Contra Costa Times - Published: January 26, 2010 cvt
