RECIPE: Homemade Taco Seasoning

Ever since I discovered how easy it is to make my own taco seasoning, I no longer buy stuff in packets. This is a bulk recipe that is enough for four pounds of meat--I make it up and use 2 Tbsp per pound of meat when needed. It's nice to have it pre-made in the pantry instead of having to make it each time I cook!

Here is a printer-friendly PDF version!

Taco Seasoning

1/4 cup chili powder
2 Tbsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. black pepper
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

Mix all ingredients together in a Mason jar or other air tight container. This makes enough for four pounds of meat--use about 2 Tbsp per pound. There is no thickener in this (corn starch or flour), so you don't need to add water to it with the meat. This is just the seasoning for the meat itself.

But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
