We love any Mexican food at our house. But I do not like buying taco seasoning packets as I prefer to adjust the taste for who in the house is eating it. I also thought the store bought had way too much salt in them.
Taco SeasoningSeasoning appears lighter than “store bought” mixes. But thickens much much better!
1/2 cup flour
3 Tablespoons chili powder
3 Tablespoons paprika
2 Tablespoons salt
2 teaspoons onion powder
4 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper (can alter to heat preference, is Mild with this measurement)
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons dried oregano
Put all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together until evenly mixed. Transfer to a pint-sized jar or container of your choosing and store.
To use: Spoon 2 Tablespoons Taco Seasoning over 1 pound of browned ground meat. Add 1/4 cup water and stir until mixed. Simmer until desired consistency is achieved. Then use in your choice of tacos, burritos, taco salad or our favorite nachos.
