Taco Seasoning on a Snow Day

Kentucky had a mid-March snow day, so I decided to sort my spices; which immediately morphed into me experimenting with Homemade Taco Seasoning recipes!  This recipe is super easy… Enjoy!

*Helpful Housewife Hint: This recipe yields approximately 7 tablespoons of seasoning. The average store-bought seasoning packet contains around 2 tablespoons of seasoning. So, use 2 tablespoons of this seasoning in place of any single store-bought packet… or use as much as you want!

What you’ll need, aka. INGREDIENTS:
3 tablespoons Chili Powder
3 teaspoons Cumin
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 1/2 teaspoons Paprika
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
2 1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoons Black Pepper

What to do aka. INSTRUCTIONS:
Measure the ingredients and combine them in a small bowl.

Enjoy all the beautiful colors, and spicy smells! Then mix all the ingredients together.

Store the taco seasoning in an airtight container… I was lucky enough to have this adorable mini-mason jar on hand.

  1. Great post! So many people forget that what you can buy in those packets is likely already sitting in your pantry 🙂

  2. Nice! We always try to make our own mixes, it really cuts down on salt and preservatives.
