Keep the MSG out of your kitchen with this super easy recipe for homemade taco seasoning mix!
Making your own taco seasoning is super easy and will save you money (not to mention exposure from additives like MSG and other preservatives in packaged seasonings!).
I started making my own a few years ago when I was making tacos and suddenly realized I had run out of seasoning. When I googled a recipe, I couldn’t believe how easy it was!
I tweaked the recipe just a tad, and I’ve been using this one ever since.
- • 2 tsp. chili powder
- • 1 1/2 tsp. paprika
- • 1 1/2 tsp. cumin
- • 1 tsp. onion powder
- • 3/4 tsp. garlic powder
- • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
- • dash cayenne
- Combine all ingredients. Use instead of 1 package of taco seasoning mix. Makes 3 tablespoons.
