Taco seasoning and measuring spoon - 3/18/2019

Making your own taco or Mexican-flavored seasoning is a great way to ensure a healthier meal without any additives or artificial items. Most of us have these ingredients on hand. Spend a few minutes to mix up a batch.

2 tablespoons chili powder

1and ½ tablespoons ground cumin

1and ½ tablespoons paprika

1 tablespoon onion powder

1 tablespoon garlic powder

2 teaspoons ground oregano

½ teaspoon red pepper flakes

½ teaspoon salt 

Mix all of the above in a small bowl. Use 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning per pound of meat. Then place leftover seasoning in a small jar or sealed storage container. Keep stored in a cool, dry place for up to six months. This makes four to five servings.
