Taco Spices

Posted on June 7, 2010 | 2 Comments

Once you’ve mixed your own taco spices, you’ll never use pre-packaged taco seasoning again. This combination of ingredients is the perfect seasoning for any taco filling. It also does wonders on a quick homemade bean burrito (soft tortilla, refried beans, diced onion, and a few generous shakes of taco spices).

Taco Spices

Mix the following:
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

Store it just as you would store other spices.

You’ve probably seen a similar or the same recipe floating around the internet, and I’m fairly certain that’s where I ran across it years ago. I’ve tried many and this certainly is the best.

As a side note, I’ve never found this seasoning to flavor plain rice very well, but every now and then I’ll be creating some new Mexi-meal and it will work perfectly there too, so it’s not a bad idea to keep this on-hand!
