#handcraftededibles: Spice Blends

#handcraftedediblesIn an effort to make all of her holiday gifts this year, Camilla at Culinary Adventures with Camilla invited some of her favorite foodie bloggers to share recipes for hand-crated edibles. Over the course of the next twelve weeks, we’ll be sharing recipes from libations (last week’s theme) to cookie platters. Hope you’ll follow along for inspiration.

I’m bummed I completely lost track of dates because I could’ve shared my Homemade Baileys for last week’s Libations theme. But looks like Rebekah of Making Miracles had that covered for me!

Today I am re-sharing my Homemade Taco Seasoning for the spice blends theme. I thought about my Gingerbread Spice Mix, but I saw someone else was already bringing that to the gift basket.

The following recipe makes approximately 1/2 C of seasoning.

Taco Seasoning


  • 4 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp cumin
  • 4 tsp kosher salt
  • 4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)


  1. Combine all ingredients. Store in an air tight container. Use in your favorite recipes.
