Trying to avoid MSG or other ingredients in seasonings? Or maybe you just have your own flavor combinations you prefer? Here is how to make your own recipe for taco seasoning!
Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix
- 1/4 c. minced onion
- 2 T chili powder
- 2 t. paprika
- 2 t. crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 1/2 t. dried oregano
- 1/2 t. marjoram
- 1 T salt
- 1/4 t. pepper
- 2 T. cornstarch
- 1 T minced garlic
- 1 t. ground cumin
Mix all the ingredients together and store in an air tight container. Use 2 tablespoons of mix per pound of beef, chicken, or anything else!
You could also use this to flavor your favorite meat recipes, taco salad, or other meat dishes! This recipe for taco seasoning makes the equivalent of 6 store bought packets.
I like to buy spices in bulk to save money. I haven't gone through and added the cost of this recipe all up but I'm guessing if you do it would be much cheaper to make your own taco seasoning than to buy those expensive little packets in the store!
You can also make your own Fajita Seasoning! Another thing that you can do with this recipe is package it in a pretty container and give it away as a homemade gift!
