Homemade Taco Seasoning

When I was growing up, shopping for taco ingredients always included grabbing a pack of taco seasoning.  A few months ago I was making tacos when I discovered I had forgotten the all important ingredient: taco seasoning! My husband grew up eating tacos made without seasoning, so he didn’t view this as a big deal. For me however, tacos are not tacos without taco seasoning! I was determined we would have seasoned tacos for dinner without another trip to the store. I searched online for taco seasoning recipes and combined what I found to come up with this recipe.  I haven’t bought taco seasoning since.

1 tbsp chili powder

½ tsp garlic powder

¼ tsp onion powder

¼ tsp dried oregano

½ tsp paprika

1 ½ tsp ground cumin

1/2  tsp salt

½ tsp cornstarch

1 tsp black pepper

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

Mix all ingredients together and store in an air tight container. 3 tbsp = one packet of taco seasoning. Not sure how to use taco seasoning to create plant based tacos? Check back soon for our first plant based taco recipe!
