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. I googled a recipe and couldn’t believe how easy it was!
I tweaked the recipe just a tad, and I’ve been using this one ever since.
Without further ado, here’s an easy-peasy recipe for taco seasoning:
- • 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.
If you’re looking for a place to get affordable ground beef in bulk, check out Zaycon Foods. Zaycon also carries other meats, including pork, chicken, and wild Argentine shrimp! I have been getting chicken breasts there for as low as $1.69/lb! Their prices are typically a fraction of the price you would pay in the grocery store! Check out Zaycon here.
