After starting the tradition of Mexican Monday in our house over three (can that be right?!) years ago, I’ve been making my own taco seasoning. Or rather, followed the recipe I found on allrecipes.com. This taco seasoning has a nice subtle kick but if you really want to crank the heat, include the crushed red pepper flakes that I omit. I make a large batch (triple the recipe below) at a time and keep it in an air tight canister.
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp dried oregano
- 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
- Combine all ingredients. Store in an air tight container. Use in your favorite recipes. Makes 1 ounce.
