This picture is the main reason I started making my own taco seasoning. The picture on the right was a jar of seasoning I had in my pantry. I mean the first ingredient is chili pepper and the second is ‘other spices’? What does that even mean? Paprika extract (and just for color)…why not just use paprika?
Anyway, after discovering that, I never bought from the store again! My family never noticed the switch. This seasoning is amazing!
Homemade Taco Seasoning
1/4 cup chili powder
2 tablespoons (optional or use to taste)
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Combine all of the ingredients and store in an airtight container. To use – 3 tablespoons equals a packet of seasoning.
