clean and easy taco seasoning {paleo/whole 30}

~y' best friend gave me this recipe for homemade taco seasoning...
even when we aren't trying to eat healthy--and those days are behind us--this is the only taco seasoning we use.  the days of store-bought, rip-open-an-envelope seasonings are so long gone.  after one taste of this, you'll never turn back.
i like to mix up a big batch--usually a triple or quadruple batch--and put it in a big, clamp-seal glass jar...that way I've got it on hand whenever i need it.  i also make it a habit to grab the ingredients for it as soon as i use them me, if it's taco night at your house, you don't want to find yourself without this stuff.

clean and easy taco seasoning
2 Tbsp. chili powder
4 tsp. onion powder
2 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. paprika
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. sugar (optional, and i always omit it)
1 tsp. salt

for taco meat:
add 1/2 cup seasoning mix and 2/3 cup water to 2 pounds browned, ground meat.  heat through and serve.

marinade for fajitas:
1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup seasoning, 3 Tbsp olive oil.  makes enough marinade for 2 pounds of meat.
