Homemade Taco Seasoning

The taco seasoning you buy in the pouches at the grocery store can be high in salt and low in flavor. Make a batch of this seasoning and keep it in your freezer. You can use it for tacos, bean burgers, beans and rice, and whatever else you want to give Mexican flavor. It calls for paprika, and the type you use is up to you; smoked, hot, or regular.
