Homemade Taco Seasoning

Lately, I've been making my own taco seasoning. You can surprisingly find it in Swiss grocery stores (even in a small town), but making it is really simple, and doesn't contain mystery ingredients. I came across this recipe when I was going to make tacos one Sunday and realized I forgot to get taco seasoning. There aren't many shops open here on Sundays, so good ol' Google came to the rescue (again). Luckily I had all the spices except for the onion powder on hand, and even without that this recipe was perfect.

This seasoning tastes just like the packets you buy in the grocery store, but you know exactly what goes into it. Use it the same way you would the usual seasoning packets. I use one batch of this mix per 3 pounds of meat. If you like spicier food, add more chili flakes or some cayenne pepper to the mix.

Adapted from Bill Echols

1 tablespoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt

Mix all the ingredients and use as you would a normal taco seasoning packet. Store in an airtight container. Pin It Now!
