Additional Notes

Homemade Taco and Chili Seasoning Prep Time: 5 minutes Ingredients: 4 tbsp. chili powder 1 tsp. garlic powder 1 tsp. onion powder 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes ΒΌ tsp. cayenne pepper (optional) 1 tsp. dried oregano 2 tsp. paprika 6 tbsp. ground cumin 4 tsp. salt 3 tsp. black pepper Directions: Mix everything in a bowl and then store in an airtight container. Notes: Use 1.5 tbsp. of seasoning for every 1 pound of meat. Make the sweet potatoes up to 3-4 days ahead of time if desired. First, rinse and poke each potato with a knife or fork to allow steam to escape. Next, wrap each rinsed (but not dried - some moisture is needed for the steam) sweet potato into a square of aluminum foil. Wrap tightly to prevent juice from seeping out then place in a crockpot and cook on high for 4-6 hours. Store in refrigerator until needed.
