I love to make my own seasonings but I really want them to be GOOD, you know?   Many taco seasoning recipes are full of cumin and I’m not a fan of cumin.  And the commercial taco seasonings are full of fillers.  I’m always amazed at how quickly I use chili powder.  I used to never finish spices before they expired :).

Here is my favorite taco seasoning recipe.   This recipe will fill a glass spice jar, leaving enough room to shake.

  • 3 TBL chili powder
  • 3 tsp garlic powder
  • 1-1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 3/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1-1/2 tsp paprika
  • 2-1/4 tsp cumin
  • 3 tsp sea salt
  • 3 tsp black pepper

Use 1-3 tablespoons per pound of meat depending on personal taste.  I use on the heavy side :).
