If you’re anything like me, you get tired of buying those little packets of taco seasoning that are filled with salt and have ingredients that you can’t pronounce. Or not. Either way, making your own taco seasoning is simple and handy to keep around. Tacos or fajitas are one of my go-to easy meals when I don’t have time to cook. I almost always have the stuff around to throw those together.
Fajita/Taco Seasoning Recipe
- 1 tbsp chili powder*
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/4 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/4 tsp salt (you can leave this out altogether if you’d like)
- 1 tsp black pepper
Combine all of your ingredients into a bowl and stir well. I like to double or even triple this recipe and keep it in a small jar to have on hand. An old spice jar works well or Ball makes handy small jars for spices as well.
*Note: Chili powder naturally has salt in it. It’s in the ingredients list on the side of the spice jar. I feel that I can leave most of the salt out of the recipe because of it.
