Homemade Taco Seasoning
Everyone is familiar with that packet of taco seasoning. Where it comes in the taco kit that you bought or you grabbed one at the store because it was only $.42. Well, those packets have a bunch of stuff in them that you really don't need in your tacos. I have been making my own Homemade Taco Seasoning for a while and even my picky eater can't tell the difference!
I make my taco seasoning as I need it, but you can also bulk up the recipe and put it in a spice container. Stored properly, it can last for quite a while. If you do make a bulk recipe to store, make sure you shake the jar before using it. That way your spices are even distributed.
Here is how I make mine:
1 TBS of chili powder, 1/2 TBS of paprika, 1 TSP of cumin, 1 TSP of garlic powder, 1/2 TSP of black pepper and 1/2 TSP of salt. Then you add 1 TBS of cornstarch and combine it.
I use this seasoning in many different recipes, including my Taco Pizza, my Beef and Bean Enchiritos and of course, TACOS! [Tweet “Spice up your dinner by making your own Homemade Taco Seasoning! #recipe #Tacos #homemade”]
