Make Your Own Taco Seasoning


We had a ton of lettuce in our CSA box this week so I decided to make Taco Salad for dinner tonight. I hate all the extra added ingredients in the pre-made taco seasoning so I attempted to make it myself. Score! Awesome flavorful taco seasoning made simply from spices I had on hand.


-2 teaspoons chili powder
-1 1/2 teaspoons salt
-1 teaspoon garlic powder
-1 teaspoon ground cumin
-1 teaspoon paprika
-1 teaspoon oregano

Stir to blend, add to 1 lb ground beef. Add more seasonings to taste. Voila!
