We love all things taco around here and I always seemed to be running low on taco seasoning. While browsing Pinterest one day, I found this recipe for homemade taco seasoning and it is delicious. No more running out for me!
The recipe below makes enough for one pound of taco meat, but I like to mix up several batches of the seasoning and store it in a glass jar in the pantry.
The original recipe is at Chef Mommy and the only change I made was to make it salt-free. Believe me, you don’t even miss the salt with all of the other great flavors.
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon black pepper
Mix all of the above ingredients together and add to one pound of cooked ground beef or turkey with one cup of water. Stir and cook until thickened. The jar above has about 3 batches of the recipe.
