Quick & Easy Taco Seasoning
I've been making my own taco seasoning for years. It's quick, easy, and I always have the ingredients on hand!
- 4 T. dried onion
- 4 T. chili powder
- 2 T. ground cumin
- 1 t. garlic powder
- 1 t. onion powder
- 2 t. paprika
- 1 t. crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 t. dried oregano
- 1 T. + 1 t. salt
- 1 T. Pepper (to taste - I use a few good grinds)
- 1 t. chipotle powder optional
- 1 t. glucomannon optional
There's really not much to this recipe! Just put all the ingredients into a mason jar, put the lid on it and shake! This will keep for months in your spice cabinet.
When you use it, add 4T. to each pound of meat, along with 1/2c. water. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes until it's all incorporated. Can I tell you a little secret? I NEVER measure this when I use it! I just dump a bit on the meat and add some water. It's better to add a little less of the seasoning blend because you can always add more if you need to. However, if you add too much water, just let it cook a little longer until the moisture evaporates.
