Most of my Make it Yourslef Monday projects come from a desire to replace a store-bought product. This one happened simply because I forgot to pick up taco seasoning at the store. It was a few years ago, back when I was a new cook and the realization competely flustered me. I started googling for a substitution – and found a ton of really easy ideas. Whew!
I’ve tried a bunch of different versions since then, but I keep coming back to this one. It’s got a great flavor and all of the spices included are ones I always have in the pantry. This recipe makes just enough to replace one store-bought package.
(slightly adapted from AllRecipes)
Makes enough to replace 1 package
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 1/2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. black pepper
3/4 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
Whisk together in a small bowl. Store in an airtight container.
