Taco Seasoning Mix

Pin It
Making your own Taco Season Mix is so easy and it taste so good! I got this recipe from my "Make-A-Mix" cookbook by Karine Eliason, Nevada Harward & Madeline Westover.  These days if I buy a package of taco seasoning in the grocery store I feel disappointed after eating. They just don't have the same zing that this recipe does. 

Taco Seasoning Mix

2tsp. instant minced onion (I have used onion powder too)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. crushed dried red pepper
1/2 tsp. instant minced garlic
1/4 tsp. dried oregano leaves
1/2 tsp. ground cumin (I normally use 1tsp.)


Taco Seasoning Mix
Just mix all of these together and then mix it in with your meat the way your normally would the store bought packages. This seasoning will cover up to 1.5 lbs of meat. 

Enjoy!

  10. Yum, that sounds delicious. I'm not a fan of those packet spice mixes at all. think they taste like one thing: sodium. We make our tacos with some fresh herbs and peppers to give it kick, but I'll definitely have to give this a try. Thanks for the recipe (and for stopping by thisismybeautifullife.com today!)
