Taco Seasoning

We made taco salad again last night, and I decided to 'just say no' to the taco seasoning packet.  Allrecipes.com came in handy yet again, and I found this recipe to season my meat with, and it was much tastier and flavorful than McCormicks.  The boys oohed and ahhed over it.

Mix together the following:
1 Tbl chili powder (or more)
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp salt
1 tsp fresh ground pepper


  1. I think it's funny how much the little things matter. You can absolutely taste the difference when you use fresh, high quality ingredients! A little goes a long way when it's homemade deliciousness.

  2. And it happens to be much cheaper, too!
