Ole! Ole! Ole! Homemade Taco Seasoning

I love to make things from scratch whenever possible.  Things like steak seasoning and pancake mix are no exception.  Why buy it when you can put together your own?  I'm willing to bet you are saving money, and you are definitely eliminating all of those ingredients that you cannot spell or pronounce.  Another convenient aspect of making your own mixes is the ability to adapt to an emergency shortage.  You're out of taco seasoning?  No fear, you don't have to make a run to the store.  Grab those spices that are sitting in your cupboard and mix up your own.  While you're at it, mix up a few and stash them in the pantry. 
The Taco Seasoning Party.  I mean Fiesta.
Measure everything into a bowl. 
Pay attention, this is really hard.
Mix everything together and
store in an air-tight container.

Taco Seasoning

1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon ground oregano
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon table salt

In a bowl, mix all ingredients together until well combine.  Store in an air-tight container.  This mix makes 3 tablespoons of taco seasoning which is equal to 1.4 ounces or 1 envelope of commercial taco seasoning.
