Homemade Taco Seasoning is the best! So easy to prepare with a mix of chili powder, cumin, garlic, cayenne pepper – and I add paprika, too.
- 1/2 cup chili powder
- 1/4 cup paprika
- 2 tablespoons ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- In a medium mixing bowl, stir together all ingredients. Store in an air tight container.
A trick we learned from cousin and fabulous home gourmet Jim Kidwell is to use a blend of various chili powders – chipotle, ancho, hot, etc. You can find them with the Mexican food in major grocery stores, at farmer’s markets and specialty spice stores.
