my homemade taco seasoning
mix in prep bowl
I found this recipe on the Internet. Why make your own? First of all, it's cheaper, way cheaper! I like the idea of making my own spice blend so I can control what goes into my meals and ultimately my body. Start with using good ingredients.
I bottle my blends in my recycled Penzeys spice jars. Shame to put those jars to waste.
1 part chili powder
1 part cumin
1 part garlic powder
1 part onion powder
1/4 - 1/2 part crushed red pepper
Mix all the spices together and store in an airtight container. You can store this in the freezer.
Use sparingly OR liberally.
I plan on using this today in my taco soup (a previous post). This would be great in tacos or 7 layer Mexican dip OR any other recipe that calls for taco seasoning.
