Tuesday: How to.... DIY Taco Seasoning

Know what's fun? WASTING MONEY!!! Wait.. no, that's not fun at all. Not unless you're a bajillionaire.... so for those of us who are NOT bajillionaires, here's a DIY taco seasoning that you can use to replace those taco seasoning packets.... save 1.19! (if you normally buy Ortega, anyhow....)

Ingredients
*2 tsp chili powder
*1 1/2 tsp onion powder
*1 tsp garlic powder
*1 tsp ground cumin
*1/2 tsp oregano
*Salt, pepper, cayenne pepper to taste

Add LOTS of cayenne if you like it spicy.... Each batch here will replace 1 taco seasoning packet in your recipes. Make a lot and then just add 5 tsp each time you make a batch 'o' tacos! And, just for a little bit of extra zesty/deliciousness, throw in a can of mild diced chilies. YUM! Enjoy!

  1. This is great! My father has heart problems and the store taco seasoning has WAY too much sodium for him to eat. This is a great substitute.

  2. Glad to hear that this can help, especially cause you pick your own amount of sodium via the salt....
