Taco Seasoning

I hate seasoning packets.  There is no place good to store them and they are so high in sodium.  Plus, nine times out of ten I end up adding more spice to them.  Tacos are something we make all the time so I wanted to find an at home recipe for the seasoning.  After trying out many, I combined a few and this is what I came up with.  If you like your tacos packed with flavor and heat, this recipe is for you.

You’ll need:

  • 1 tablespoon chili powed
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion salt (or powder and a pinch of salt)
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregeno
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika

Mix together in a small bowl

Coat your 1 pound of browned ground turkey or beef with 2 tablespoons of flour then add your spice mix.  Add 2/3 cup water and allow to simmer/ thicken.  I recommend serving with my guacamole and salsa your other favorite taco garnishes. taco seasoning recipe
