Taco Seasoning

JM Avallone


We love tacos! but personally we prefer to add more seasoning then the store bought kit offers so I used to buy that big container of the seasoning, we are trying to cut our salt intake so I had tossed it and forgot. I went to the cupboard to make some tacos last night only to realize I had just the shells what to do what to do..Make your own that's what you do! cheaper better and tailored to your own liking.

No-Cook or Other


1 Tbsp
chili powder
1/4 tsp
garlic powder
1/4 tsp
onion powder
1/4 tsp
crushed red pepper flakes or 1/8 tsp of cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp
dried oregano
1/2 tsp
1 1/2 tsp
cumin ground
1 tsp
1 tsp
black pepper fresh ground
1 tsp
cornstarch or 2 tsp flour
1 tsp
beef bouillon

Directions Step-By-Step

mix all ingredients: use 3 tablespoons per 1 pound of meat. ( I only use turkey).
while browning the meat use some of the bullion, I use better then bullion paste careful the salt content is high I used less salt in the dry mix then most so if you love salt add more.
after the meat is browned add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water.
I suggest you make double or triple the amount and save it. it is so much better then those packets and way less sodium. I was also lucky I had all organic spices on hand.
