Tacos are versatile and oh-so-yummy, don’t you agree? I normally use the little packets of seasoning when I cook but not anymore! The pre-made mixes cost money and are full of salt and other gross chemicals. So, I’m gonna show you how to make your own seasoning that is low in salt, high in flavor, and very cheap to make and keep on hand.
*This recipe will only be cost effective if you have a well stocked spice cabinet. If you don’t have many spices, well, you should! If not for this recipe, then for other recipes you can make in the future.
6 Teaspoons Chili Powder
5 Teaspoons Paprika
4 1/2 Teaspoons Cumin
2 1/2 Teaspoons Onion Powder
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
Mix all the spices together and store in an airtight container.
7 Teaspoons Spice Mix = 1 Store Bought Packet
*This recipe yields 21 teaspoons which is equal to 3 store bought packets*
Now go start cooking – it’s Taco Tuesday!
