I loathe spending a minimum of $0.50 per packet for seasonings, so I’ve made it my mission to recreate those packets at home for less! This taco seasoning recipe is pretty tame but you can add additional chili powder or red pepper flakes to make it spicier! This recipe only yields one ounce so my suggestion would be to make it as is the first time around, but if you like it, after that make it in larger batches to fill your desired container.
- 4 tbsp. chili powder
- 2 tbsp. ground cumin
- 1 tbsp. paprika
- 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
- 1 tsp. dried oregano
- 1 tsp. onion powder
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. black pepper
- 1 tsp. salt
- Mix together all ingredients and store in an airtight container or jar.
- Yields: 4 ounces (1 oz./serving)
