Taco Seasoning

Taco Seasoning

About a year and a half ago, I made enchiladas and used home made enchilada sauce and taco seasoning that I found at All Recipes.  I’ve gone back to that recipe again and again because I love the seasonings so much!  Very low sodium, very easy to toss together and it costs pennies compared to the kind in the packet…not to mention it’s the perfect job to give one of the kids (or your significant other!) to do while you’re prepping the rest of the meal.

I like tons of flavor in my taco meat so I use all of this for a pound of ground beef.  If it looks like a little too much for your taste, just use half and save the rest in an airtight container for next time.

Ingredients

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

Mix into your cooked and drained taco meat with 3/4 cup water, then simmer till liquid has reduced by about half.
