Homemade Taco Seasoning

This is so much better than the little package.  And…..you probably have most of the spices already in your spice collection.  I modified it a little and added some of the jalapeno powder that I had, plus a teaspoon of salt.  Exactly 7 teaspoons of this equals what is in that package.

  • 6 tsp. of chili power
  • 5 tsp.  paprika
  • 4 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 2 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

I added, optionally:

  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. jalapeno powder

Mix all together and store in an air-tight container in a cool place for up to six months.
