Have you ever looked at the ingredients on a packet of taco seasoning? Do you know what all the ingredients actually ARE? Me either! That's why I set out on a quest to find the perfect homemade taco seasoning! I wanted to know that there were no preservatives or 'extras' in what I was feeding my family. This is the recipe I came up with.
Any of the amounts may be adjusted to your liking. To make a taco seasoning that you can thicken with water (like the directions on the seasoning packets, add 1 tsp corn starch!
Homemade Taco Seasoning
Ingredients:1 Tbsp chili powder
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Makes 3 Tablespoons of mix, which equals the flavor of 1 pouch of commercial taco seasoning. Salt and heat can be adjusted to your preference.
I use this for tacos, fajitas, and gorditas! What is another kitchen staple you would like to learn how to make homemade?
