HOMEMADE TACO SEASONING
If you are anything like I used to be, picking up a taco kit from Old El Paso was a regular thing on a busy night. It’s a quick, easy to make dinner staple.
However, cooking that flavour packet up with some ground beef and then stuffing the mixture into some stale-ass taco shells was underwhelming to say the least.
I’ve obviously evolved with what I eat and how I prepare my food.
Now my taco nights feature a fresh bed of greens instead of tasteless taco shells.
Instead of that envelope of who-knows-how-old spice blend of modified crap, I use a fresh mixture of seasonings from my shelf. All organic and customized to my liking.
Now I share it with you!
HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE TACO SEASONING
It really couldn’t be easier to make your own single serve seasoning blend. You simply measure and stir!
The base is chili powder. From there I like to add onion powder, cumin and, my personal fave, the chili flakes. Those chili’s bring the heat, friends. 🙂
Use this with a pound of quality ground beef or wherever a recipe calls for a packet of taco seasoning.
- 3 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tbsp cumin
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp chili flakes
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
Add all ingredients to a bowl and stir well with a fork
For spiced beef, add the blend to one pound of freshly browned ground beef along with 3 tbsp of water. Mix well and bring to a quick boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
