6 tsp Chili Powder
4 1/2 tsp Cumin
1 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
5 tsp Paprika
3 tsp Onion Powder
1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper

Combine all ingredients in a storage container with a tight fitting lid. Mix well.

Combine 2 TBSP mix and 1/4 to 1/2 Cup water with meat (Ground beef, turkey, chicken, pork, anything) Simmer for about 10 minutes.

Use about 2 TBSP seasoning mix to season season 8-10 tacos.
