Taco Seasoning

2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon oregano
Cayenne pepper to taste (start with 1/4 teaspoon)

I like to make a big batch and store it in a recycled jar so it's alwaysready. Just measure out 1/4 cup of seasoning mix for every pound of meat.

Brown Sugar

Add 1 tablespoon ofmolasses for each cup of sugar


6 ounce can tomato paste

1/2 cup light corn syrup

1/4 tsp garlic powder

Combine in medium saucepan over medium heat.

When mixture comes to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes, stirringoften

Remove pan from heat and cover until cool. Chill and serve. Makes 1 1/2cups.
