Homemade Taco Seasoning

by

We decided to have homemade tacos last night for dinner and I forgot to get a package of taco seasoning at the store.  I decided to Google a recipe and found this one on The Pioneer Woman’s website.  We have used so many of her recipes that I knew it would be great.  I will never buy taco seasoning again, this was the best ever and it literally cost pennies to make.

FullSizeRender (20)Ingredients:

2 teaspoons Chili Powder
1-1/2 teaspoon Ground Cumin
1/2 teaspoon Paprika
1/2 teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4 teaspoon Onion Powder
1/4 teaspoon Dried Oregano
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper

Instructions:
Measure out all the ingredients in a small bowl. Mix well. Then taste and adjust the salt or spices as desired. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.

For a larger batch (the equivalent of about 6 packets), use:

1/4 cup chili powder
3 tablespoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon each paprika, crushed red pepper, and salt
1 1/2 teaspoons each garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, black pepper

Notes:
When I was ready to use mine I mixed it with about 1/2 cup of hot water and stirred it into the meat and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.  In the future I will mix up the large batch and store it in one of my canning jars, that way it’s ready for when I need it.  This would also be good in a batch of chili.
