Description

Make your own Taco Seasoning—save money and eat better!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cayenne (more Or Less For Heat)
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Minced Onion
  • 1 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 teaspoon Oregano
  • 2 teaspoons Paprika
  • 2 Tablespoons Cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon Sea Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Onion Powder

Preparation

Pour all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix. I would quadruple the recipe! That way you only have to make it once in a while. These amounts are just guidelines. Put in what you like, and leave out what you don’t!

I liked it! I used a tablespoon with a pound of cooked and drained ground beef simmered for about 3 minutes with about a 1/4 cup of water. This was the perfect amount to me, as the packaged mixes are way overpowering to my taste.

I use 1-2 tablespoons per pound of meat. I use more if I’m using turkey or chicken, less if I’m using beef or bison. Enjoy!

This had wonderful flavor! A little spicy, but I will use less red pepper flakes next time. It’s wonderful to have on hand!

Oh gosh that’s embarrassing – I’ve used this recipe plenty of times and haven’t rated it yet! Shame on me! LOL This is such a great recipe – I love that you can control what you put into it and a great way to use up dried spices. It’s wonderful that you can make this at home and not have to go to the store and buy a packet with questionable ingredients! Best of all it tastes GREAT! Love this and will be using it time and time again! Thank you so much!
