Like my Grill Rubs for Pork and Chicken, I keep a small tub of this in the fridge. This recipe was adapted from one at allrecipes.com.
- 4 T chili powder
- 1 t garlic powder
- 1 t onion powder
- 1/2 – 1 t cayenne (1/2 t for mild, 1 t for medium heat)
- 1 t dried oregano
- 2 t paprika
- 1 T cumin
- 1/2 T kosher salt
- 1/2 T fresh cracked pepper
Use as little or as much as you want. I often double this recipe.
When I make tacos, I brown a pound of ground beef, chicken, or turkey. Then I add some onion, and cook that just a bit to soften the onion. Then I add a 4oz can tomato sauce, 1/2 c water, and ~2-3 T of this mix. Then I just simmer ~10 minutes to thicken. Done!
