Use 4 teaspoons of taco seasoning (13 grams) for every 1 pound (454 grams) of meat, vegetables, or seafood.
Add the taco seasoning after fully cooking the proteins or tenderizing the vegetables. Sprinkle onto the food and cook for 1 to 2 minutes.
Add more seasoning to taste, or add more of the other spices to your liking.

Recipe Yield: makes 8 teaspoons (26 grams) of seasoning, enough for 2 pounds of meat, vegetables, or seafood.
For a thicker taco seasoning sauce: Add 2 tablespoons flour, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, or 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder to the taco seasoning blend. Once the meat is browned, add the seasoning and water, stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until the sauce thickens. For every 1 pound of meat or vegetable use half the amount of seasoning blend and ¾ cups of water. If using flour add 7 teaspoons per 1 pound food. For cornstarch or arrowroot powder add 5 ½ teaspoons per 1 pound of food.
