Good Morning! How is everyone today?
I am busy, busy, getting ready for my sister in law’s wedding! Today is packing and organizing and then Mr. Delish and I will be making the 4 hour trip to Kelowna tomorrow. Well normally it takes 4 hours, usually 2.5 hours when Mr. Delish is driving. Most times try to nap to avoid being terrified.
Today I am equipping you with one of my new favorite things, homemade taco seasoning. I absolutely LOATHE prepackaged sauces and spice mixes. They are filled with salt and MSG and bad things that you don’t want to put in your body. I know, I know, I fill my body with butter and bacon but you know what, that stuff is 100% au natural…and yummy.
This spice mix is perfect for tacos but can also be used to flavor many different Mexican dishes. Try it on chicken, or in tortilla soup. You’ll want to add a little at first and then add more to suit your tastes. I added about a quarter of the recipe to about a pound of ground beef for tacos and it was pretty spicy!
Homemade Taco Seasoning:
Equivalent to about 4 packages of the store bought stuff
1/4 cup Chili Powder
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1 tsp Dried Oregano
2 tsp Smoked Paprika (you can use regular paprika but the smoked stuff is amazing!)
2 tbsp Ground Cumin
1 tbsp + 1 tsp Salt
1 tbsp + 1 tsp Freshly Ground Pepper
In an airtight container, add all of the ingredients. Place on the lid and make sure it is sealed completely and then shake it up until it is all mixed evenly. You can store the mix in the same airtight container and use on multiple occasions.
