Homemade Taco Seasoning

Taco Seasoning-002.jpg

Tacos are one of my favorite quick and easy dinners. They’re not fancy — just some meat, spices, cheese and tomatoes in hard shells. Yum. And all my life, I’ve used taco seasoning from a packet.

Until now.

I never realized how easy it is to throw together some homemade taco seasoning. Most of the spices are probably already in your cabinet. You just have to experiment a little with the ratios to find a flavor combination you enjoy. It’s really that simple.

Here’s how I like it, adapted from Tastespotting:

Taco Seasoning

3 parts chili powder
2 parts ground cumin
1 part paprika
½ part cayenne pepper
1 part dried oregano
1 part onion powder
1 part garlic powder
1 part salt
½ part black pepper

Mix all the ingredients together and use however you’d like.

  1. So would it be like 3 tablespoons chili powder and 2 tablespoons cumin? I just get confused with “parts”.

  2. how much then would you use of this per 1lb of meat?
