I started this year off by trying to eliminate processed foods. They have so many unhealthy additives and so many things can easily be made at home in your own kitchen. Taco seasoning is one of them. Having your own premade seasonings also helps cut down on the extra time you spend in the kitchen preparing whole natural food.
Pictured below are the spices I used (you can tell I shop everywhere, where ever the best sale is, lol.) Here's a word of caution- check each individual spice for additives as well. That black pepper- the label says it contains wheat, and therefore, gluten. It's no longer in my kitchen. There is no need for anything in black pepper other than black pepper.
Here is the recipe I followed (adapted from here and the book Easy Homemade) :
1/4 cup chili powder
2 tablespoons ground cumin
4 teaspoons Kosher salt
4 teaspoons ground black pepper
2 teaspoons paprika1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon dried oregano
You can use 2 1/2 tablespoons in place of a packet of taco or chili seasoning mix.
Store your mix in a repurposed jar. Another plus for our environment and world.
