Taco Seasoning Mix

You probably already have all the spices in your cabinet to make a taco mix instead of buying a premixed package. Once I thought about taco seasoning not being a spice and just a combo of what I already had, I saw no need to buy a mix again. The extra benefit to making your own is controlling the salt and reconizing each ingredient. The amount of each spice can be adjusted to your family’s liking. Enjoy!

Taco Seasoning Mix
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. paprika
1 1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 to 1 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. black pepper

Combine all seasonings. This is equal to a 1-oz. package of store bought taco mix. If using for tacos, add 1/2 to 3/4 cups of water to the dish in addition to the seasoning mix.

    I needed some taco seasoning for my taco salad tonight. I had everything I needed to make my own. Presto, I have taco seasoning. Nice to be able to make my own. Thanks Martha
