Taco Seasoning Recipe

My husband and I are not fans of Cumin, so I've had to come up with our own Taco Seasoning as we make Mexican food. The other day, I decided I should just make a large amount so that I didn't need to make it every time we needed it. It is super simple but would be nice to have it just done and ready when we wanted it.

Taco Seasoning Recipe

5 tablespoons chili powder
2 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
2 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
3 1/2 teaspoons paprika
5 teaspoons sea salt
3 teaspoons black pepper

Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl or container. Seal in an airtight container. I used a mason jar.

  1. Hmmm...I've been making my own taco seasoning for a long time, but I never thought to put paprika in it...I'm going to try that with next batch...I think the smoked paprika will be great! Thanks!

  2. Take the green cover from a parmesean cheese container, it will fit on your mason jar perfectly! You can either shake it out, or use your spoon. :)
