on Homemade Taco Seasoning...

By Calicotales @calicotales
We love to make tacos or some sort of Mexican dish at least a couple times a month. Or nachos. Ohhhh, we love nachos. You know those little taco seasoning packets that we all buy at the grocery store whenever we plan on making tacos? The ones that you sprinkle over your beef or chicken, well, no need to spend your dollars on them any longer. You can make your homemade taco seasoning right in your own kitchen. Cool right? I think so, only because who the heck knows what is in those packets and most the time the sodium levels are sky high. So next time you plan on making tacos just use this recipe. It will even taste better!!

1 tablespoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper

Simply mix all seasoning together. This makes about 1 oz (2 tablespoons) taco seasoning. Personally this amount is perfect for 1 pound of beef or chicken but if you wanted more just double this recipe. This seasoning keeps in a air tight container or even a Ziploc bag. Easy.

Moral of the story? Make this taco seasoning. A) Because it's way more delicious that anything else and B) Because all these spices are already in your kitchen so really you have no excuse. 


ps: next time you make a traditional taco substitute lettuce with fresh cilantro. holy smokes!
