Next time you’re at the grocery store, read the ingredients in taco seasoning. It may be an eye opener to learn how many chemicals are in there – YUCK. But I know you can’t live without the yummy goodness of taco flavored everything (it’s always a sure thing in our house). Fear not!
This recipe is all about ratios. No matter if you’re making just enough for tonight’s dinner or filling a whole mason jar to always be ready for Taco Tuesday. What ever size measuring device you choose – palmful, tablespoon, 1/4 cup or gallon (don’t use a gallon) just stick to the ratio as follows.
2 parts onion powder
2 parts cumin
2 parts salt
1 part paprika
1 part garlic powder
1/2 part chili powder (adjust this more or less depending on whether you like it hot or you’re a wimp like me)
In a container or bowl of your choice (I’m sticking with my good old fashioned mason jar), put everything in and stir it or shake it up. The kids love to do this.
There you have it – healthier and will save you lots of money too. Keep following us and you’ll get lots of recipes that use this taco seasoning.
