|Put Your Kid to Work & Have Her Mix|
love with the flavor that you get from the packaged Taco seasoning mixes. So, I decided to give the whole making my own Taco Seasoning thing a try!
I am happy to report that this was much more tasty than what I usually buy.
I liked the info and recipe from Smashed Peas and Carrots the best. I don't think that it is cheaper to make your own as the little packets are only about $0.75 each. But, maybe if you already own all the spices it is cheaper? I had to go shopping.
All you need is:
1/4 cup chili powder
|The Ingredients For Homemade Taco Seasoning|
- It is worth buying the big wholesale size chili powder if you plan to make this and store the extra.
- The texture is much bumpier than I expected.
- I used smoked paprika because that is what we had and it tasted fine and didn't taste smoked once in the food dish (chili).
- I think it would be great to make a bunch of spices and seal them in 2 TBS sized pouches with a food sealer. I hope to seal some and show you all what I am talking about.
