Homemade Taco SeasoningAugust 20, 2012 • By Tara Ziegmont
Since my days as a Pampered Chef consultant, I have loved taco seasoning.
We eat a lot of tacos, taco dips, enchiladas, chilis, and other foods that use taco dip, so we go through a lot of it.
I also have high blood pressure, and that pre-made taco seasoning is insanely high in salt.
I’ve been looking for a taco seasoning recipe that tastes as good as my old favorite, and I’ve found one.
Homemade Taco Seasoning
- 1/4 cup chili powder
- 2 tablespoons ground cumin
- 4 teaspoons sea salt
- 4 teaspoons ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- Combine all ingredients in a jar with a tight lid. Shake until well mixed. Store in a cool, dry place.
You know I’m the first person to reach for convenience foods when necessary – pre-made pie crust, whipped cream, and ketchup are high on my list – but we also make a lot of things from scratch. In almost every case, cooking from scratch is healthier and better-tasting. It’s almost always cheaper, too.
What do you make from scratch?
