Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix Recipe

Taco seasoning mix is really easy to make at home. You probably already have on hand everything you need to make it. Not only does it taste better, it is less expensive and doesn't have any additives or preservatives that are bothersome to so many people.

Taco seasoning only has a few key ingredients. They are:

1 tbsp. chili powder
2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt

Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl. This recipe makes the equivalent of one package of store-bought taco seasoning mix.

To use, add mix and 3/4 c. water to 1 lb. browned ground beef or turkey. Simmer for about 5 minutes, or until liquid is mostly absorbed and mixture has thickened. Prepare tacos as usual.
