This is the spice mix from a taco recipe that I got from Redbook's Wise Woman's Diet Cookbook. Whenever I have a recipe that calls for a package of taco seasoning mix, this is what I use. The great thing about it is that it has no MSG or preservatives. *Update* This recipe is equal to one packet of taco seasoning mix -- enough to season one pound of ground meat.
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cumin
- Mix together and use in place of a package of taco seasoning mix.
very good mix, i used this as the base because i like to add cumin to my taco seasoning, and absolutely loved the cinnamon in it
I disliked the cinnamon flavor. I thought it would be interesting, yet it did not work for me.
I was a little suspicious of using cinnamon in the mix but found that I liked it very much. I agree -- I love the fact there's no MSG and tons of salt. I will be making this one again. Made for Zaar I Recommend Tag Game 2011.
