Taco Seasoning Mix

Printable Recipe

2 t. salt
2 T. chili powder
2 T. Smoked Paprika
2 T. flour
1 t. garlic powder
1 t. cumin
1/2 t. oregano

Mix together and store in a container. Use 2 Tablespoons to 1 cup of water for each pound of hamburger if you're doing tacos.

Holly's Note: 
I haven't purchased regular taco seasoning since I found this recipe. I love that I can use more or less, depending on the recipe and our tastes. The key to this being the best taco seasoning ever is to use Smoked Paprika. Seriously. I get mine at Costco and it adds the most amazing depth. 

Using a mason jar with the lid from a Parmesan cheese container makes it really easy to store and either spoon or shake into other recipes.

And as far as tripling or quadrupling to fill a mason jar.  I just add all the ingredients three or four times each.  I'm not a math person!

  5. I love making my own seasonings. You can make so much more than what you get in a single packet. Such a money saver, especially if you use a lot of it like we do. Thanks for sharing this on the #yuckstopshere link up. Please come share again with us next week.

  24. It kind of bugs me when a recipe calls for 1 Tbsp taco seasoning and I'm left with a partial package. Homemade mixes make more sense not only for this, but I usually have all the separate ingredients anyway! I like your use of smoked paprika! Thanks for sharing.
