  • Do you have a bunch of spices in your cabinet? Here's a seasoning recipe I found on google:

    * 1 tablespoon chili powder
    * 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    * 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
    * 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    * 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
    * 1/2 teaspoon paprika
    * 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
    * 1 teaspoon sea salt
    * 1 teaspoon black pepper

  • I brown my meat and drain, the I add diced onions, crushed garlic, 1 15oz can drained diced tomatoes, cumin and chili powder. Then I add about 1/2 a cup of water and simmer it down until it is your desired thickness. You can add red pepper flakes for more heat.
