    Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:

    Try this seasoning instead of using the packets of taco seasoning. Makes a great gift too! This not only saves you money it tastes better too! You control the amounts- feel free to adjust to fit your taste. If you like it hotter you can add some cayenne or up the chili powder! Enjoy!

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    1.25 oz ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons paprika
    • 2 tablespoons cumin, we love cumin- feel free to adjust to your taste
    • 2 teaspoons oregano, preferably Mexican oregano
    • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons onion flakes (minced dried onion) or 1 1/2 tablespoons onion powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, omit if you like it mild and increase if you like it spicier
    • 1 teaspoon salt, adjust for your taste the salt helps to keep it fresh when storing

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix all spices together.
    2. 2
      Store in airtight container. Will keep for 6 months to a year.
    3. 3
      7 teaspoons of this spice mix is the equivalent of one 1.25 oz packet of store bought taco seasoning. This recipe makes the equivalent of 4 spice packets.
    4. 4
      To make tacos- mix 7 tsp (or 2 T and 1 t) to 1 lb ground meat that has been browned and drained of fat. Add 3/4 cup water and stir to blend. Cook til water has evaporated.

      My son asked for tacos for dinner but I hesitated, as I am trying to cut out foods that contain MSG because they trigger my DH's migraines and dry seasoning mixes are notorious for that additive. I was so happy to find this recipe...it was easy, is economical and tasted as good as or better than store bought. I made a big batch and look forward to using it over and over. Thanks sooo much for posting!

      We thought this was tasty. The 7 tsp. was the right amount for 1lb of beef. I was looking for a little more spice so I will probably add some more cayenne and maybe a bit more salt. Thank you, I always prefer to make my own rather than buy at the store when I can!

      Really good! My new standard taco seasoning. I use Penzey's spices and believe that makes a big difference. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
