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.
