Homemade Taco Seasoning


Description

Spice up your meals with Homemade Taco Seasoning! Made with simple spices you already have at home, this flavorful spice blend takes just 5 minutes to make- and you’ll never go back to store-bought again!


Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder (or ground dried chilies- see notes) 
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon coriander
  • 1 tablespoon granulated garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Mexican oregano
  • 1/43/4 teaspoons ground chipotle powder  (or smoked paprika or cayenne pepper) 
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar (or sugar substitute, optional, but tasty)
  • 1/41/2 teaspoon ground pepper

Instructions

Measure and Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl and give a good stir.

Store in a sealed jar.

If adding whole dried chilies: Test for heat level (it should say on the package, or taste small piece). Place a whole chili in a high-powered blender, or spice grinder (remove stems, and seeds if you like). Grind until fine. Use as “chili powder” adding 1 tablespoon to this basic recipe. Use the remainder as you would chili flakes- I like to keep in a little bowl handy by the stove.


Notes

To enhance or revive spices or dried chilies,  lightly toast in a dry skillet for 30-60 seconds. Let cool before mixing.

Spice blend will keep 6-9 months in a sealed jar.

Add the entire batch of spices to one normal-sized batch of chili (1-2 lbs meat + 1-2 cans beans).
