My family eats tacos like they are going out of style. What gets expensive (although it is not usually too bad if you can find it on sale) is the taco seasoning. To solve this problem, I started making my own and came up with this easy homemade taco seasoning recipe. It is really very simple and the great thing about making things like this yourself, is, you can adjust to your personal tastes!
For this Taco Seasoning Recipe, you will need:
- 1/2 Cup Chilli Powder
- 3 1/2 Tbsp ground cumin
- 3 1/2 Tbsp Garlic salt (use Garlic Powder if you are watching sodium intake)
- 3 Tbsp Chipotle Powder
- 2 tbsp ground oregano
- 1 tbsp Cayenne (cut in half or omit depending on spiciness factor you are trying to achieve)
It is very simple. Just combine ingredients. To use, just add 2 1/2 Tbsp per lb of ground meat or chicken with 1/4 cup of water. Stir it and evenly distribute the taco seasoning mix and let water evaporate. I also suggest drining meat of grease before adding. This also goes well in taco casseroles and really give burgers a kick if you mix it into the ground meat and them make patties!
