WFMW- Homemade Taco Seasoning

I stopped buying those little packets of Taco Seasoning years ago because I started making my own. I store this in a re-purposed glass jar and use about 6-7 teaspoons for a pound of ground meat. Works well with beef or turkey.
This will make enough seasoning for 3 pounds of meat. Its so much easier to keep these around even though the initial cost is more expensive then the packet of taco seasoning, the over all cost is less and these spices can be used in many other ways:

6 teaspoons chili powder
5 teaspoons paprika
4 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
2 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch (optional)
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

If you have a young child or someone who is sensitive to spicy foods you can omit the cayenne pepper and the red pepper flakes.
