Homemade Taco Seasoning

I’ve been trying to eat healthier and one of the pages I follow on Facebook is Clean Food Crush.  I saw a post about a year ago for homemade taco seasoning and I tried it and really like it.  I’ve been using it exclusively for the past year.  I was running out today and decided to make some more.  I use the recipe that I found on Clean Food Crush, but I modify it a bit (no red pepper flakes for me) and I multiple the number of servings so that I can store it and have it ready to go whenever I want.

Here is the recipe that I use:

  • Chili Powder  – 12 Tbsp
  • Garlic Powder – 1 Tbsp
  • Onion Powder – 1 Tbsp
  • Dried Oregano – 1 Tbsp
  • Smoked Paprika – 2 Tbsp
  • Ground Cumin – 6 Tbsp
  • Sea Salt – 4 Tbsp
  • Black Pepper – 4 Tbsp

Mix together and store in a tightly closed container.  I use a jar from one of the spaghetti sauces that we had.    To use, for 1 pound of ground beef I normally use 2 Tbsp of the seasoning, but you can use more or less to taste.  I was scared that moving away from the normal Old El Paso taco mix wouldn’t go over well, but my husband actually loves it and so does my daughter.
