Basic Taco Seasoning

on April 4, 2010

I don’t know about you but I really don’t like to use the packaged seasoning mixes much anymore. They are too full of preservatives and secret ingredients that make me uneasy. So I’ve started to make my own. You will probably have these spices on hand anyway so might as well put them to good use! I’ve researched many recipes for this and came up with a good combination that I like the best. This recipe also makes about 2/3 cup of seasoning. This way you don’t have to keep making it every time you need it! It’ll be on hand and you will know exactly what is in it. Store it in an airtight container. You can even save the old spice bottles and use them. If you like hotter spice you can always add more of the chili powder or if you find it too hot, cut the amount of chili powder. It’s your choice! Have fun!

INGREDIENTS:

¼ cup chili powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon dried oregano

2 teaspoons paprika

2 tablespoons ground cumin

1 ½ tablespoons crushed sea salt

1 tablespoon black pepper

DIRECTIONS:

1. In a small bowl mix all ingredients together. Store in an airtight container.

Yield: About 2/3 cup
