Looking for an easy way to add some flavour to meats, vegetables, sauces or dips? Look no further than this quick and easy recipe for homemade taco seasoning!
Ingredients (makes approx. 8-10 tbsp):
¼ cup chili powder
2 tablespoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon crushed chili pepper flakes
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
Combine all herbs and spices and mix well.
I use between 1-2 tablespoons per 1lb of meat or vegetables (depending on how spicy I want a particular dish) and have used it as a rub, a marinade and flavouring for a multitude of dishes. You can also mix it in sauces and dips – start with ½ tsp per ½ cup of sauce/dip and adjust to taste.
If stored in an airtight container at room temperature, this seasoning will keep for up to 2 years.
