I’ve always felt that the taco seasoning packets you can purchase at the grocery store were just a tad bit too salty. Then one day I found a recipe to make it myself, and I opted to reduce the salt. I’ve never looked back; it’s been years since I have used the packaged stuff!
This recipe is what I use for my stock.
1/4 cup chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp paprika
2 Tbsp ground cumin
2 tsp sea salt
4 tsp black pepper
- In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients. Store in an airtight container.
- To use, add 1/8 cup seasoning + 3/4 cup water per pound of meat (or to taste).
