Taco Seasoning Blend

Have you ever actually read the ingredient list on the back of the package of taco seasoning mix? Unless you're a chemist or a nutritionist, you may not be able to pronounce all the ingredients. But here's a handy dandy little seasoning mix that you can whisk together with your pantry ingredients.  I bet you can pronounce everything in my list!

1 T. chili powder
2 t. onion powder
2 t. ground cumin
2 t. granulated garlic
1 t. smoked paprika
1 t. dried Mexican oregano
1/2 t. sugar
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. ground cayenne (I used 1/2 t.)

Add all ingredients to a small bowl and whisk to combine.  

Use 1 T. per pound of browned chicken, pork, beef, or turkey for tacos.  Store in an airtight container.

  1. you are right. who knows what that stuff is in the mixes. I quit using them. Cause the husband (the ruling force of what we cook) said he did not like the taste of taco season.
