So I found plenty of Pinterest posts about mixing your own taco seasoning rather than buying those packets every time. Last time I remade the One Pan Enchilada Pasta (recipe over here), I decided to make a whole bunch of taco seasoning for that and for next time. So:
I used this graphic for my mixture.
1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 Teaspoon Paprika
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Oregano
1 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
1/2 Teaspoon Sugar
2 Teaspoons Onion Powder
Mix together. Store in Mason Jar or similar container. Season meals with to add tex-mex-y goodness.
I had most everything on had which made this really easy and had no problem picking up the few additional items.
I don’t know how much the above yields compared with how much is needed for well, anything. I just about quadrupled it (may have actually been more) which gave a good amount (I think).
The packets I’ve seen previously of taco seasoning include 2 tablespoons of the mixture – now I can just easily measure out that much from my jar instead.
