DIY Taco Seasoning!

008 copy 2

Have you ever started to make dinner and realize that you don’t have one key ingredient? That happened to me tonight. I started dinner at my usual time. I was craving some tacos because it has been a few months since having them (summer time I cook outside). I opened up my spice cabinet only to find I was missing Taco Seasoning! Ugh! Frantic I went to my computer to find out what all is IN taco seasoning. Luckily I had most ingredients for the recipe I found but had to substitute some. Wow! It was WAY better then what I buy! The best part- because of the spices I buy: I knew 100% for sure there was NO MSG and NO GLUTEN!

I am in love with this seasoning. It took seconds to mix up and once and then I just added it to my meat with some water and it was ready to go!

If you want the original recipe you can check it out HERE. Below is what I did and will continue making!

What you will need?

  • 1 tbsp Chili Powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion flakes
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground white pepper

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl.

Brown 1.5lbs of hamburger and add the above to it. Mix in 1/2-3/4 cup of water. Let simmer until water has cooked off.

    Sounds really good! I don’t use chili powder in mine because my husband doesn’t like things spicy. . . . I on the other hand love spices!

    Gonna for sure give this a try because sometimes it’s easier just to make your own things than to buy them at the store!
