Homemade Taco Seasoning


Jana here with a very versatile recipe - Homemade Taco Seasoning!   This is great for several reasons.  It is good make in a pinch if you were planning to use taco seasoning in a packet, but are out.  It is much cheaper to make it yourself, and healthier!  There is less salt than the packaged seasoning, and you know exactly what is in it!  I found this recipe at All Recipes

Homemade Taco Seasoning

3 tablespoons chili powder
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon onion powder
3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1 tablespoon + 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon black pepper

In a small bowl, mix all ingredients.  The measurements above will make about 9 tablespoons.  Two or three tablespoons of the mixture will be equal flavoring to a taco seasoning packet.  You can easily make more or less of this, to serve your needs.  I like to make at least this amount, and store it in an air-tight container so I have some on hand!
