Taco Salad is one of my favorite go to quick dinner recipes. The spicy meat, crunch of the chips, and fresh veggies is a tasty meal. In the past I have picked up packaged taco seasoning for convenience. Turns out convenient sometimes is not so healthy. I came across a homemade taco seasoning recipe from Annie’s Eats. Simple ingredients and just a few minutes of my time and we had homemade taco seasoning!
This a package of the quick seasoning mix I used to pick up. Some of those ingredients I hadn’t heard of and we had been eating that mess.
These are the ingredients to make your own homemade taco seasoning.
4 tablespoons Chili Powder – (My Dad says Gebhardt is the best so he sends it to me from Texas since I can’t find it here in Georgia.)
3 tablespoons Ground Cumin
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon Paprika
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons Onion Powder
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
Mix all the ingredients together to blend.
