Make your own Taco Seasoning!

22 Jun

I hate buying pre-made taco seasoning for a few reasons: I don’t like the taste, it is FULL of unneeded sodium and it cost  .50-$1.50 per package!  So thanks to “Smashed Peas and Carrots” for sharing her homemade Taco Seasoning recipe!

DIY Taco Seasoning -print this recipe HERE
1/4 cup chili powder
1 1/2 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 1/2 oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Mix all the ingredients above in a small bowl.  Keep fresh in an air tight container for up to 6 months.
Double or triple recipe as needed.
To use:  substitute 2 rounded Tablespoons for 1 packet of taco seasoning.
**You can also kick up the heat a notch by adding in 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes!!**
