Super Cheap Homemade Taco Seasoning

Posted by supermom on July 10, 2008

Rather than buy those pouches of taco seasoning, why not make it yourself.  It’s fast and easy using spices you probably already have in your cupboard.  I buy my spices from the bulk bins at the health food store which also makes this recipe very inexpensive.

An added bonus (for me anyway) is there’s no having to check labels for MSG; to which I’m allergic.

Taco Seasoning

In a small bowl combine:

1 tbsp chili powder

1 1/2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp dried oregano

1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

This makes enough seasoning to flavour 1 lb of ground meat.  Make it one batch at a time or double, triple, etc and store in an airtight container.  It should keep for several months without losing any flavour.
