homemade famous taco seasoning



i hadn't ever thought of making my own taco seasoning until i stumbled across this recipe.  i had always prepared ahead and bought the packets at the store.  i never truly liked the taste of them because they were a bit strong and i know they were loaded with sodium and other processed ingredients.

after tasting this particular one, i know i'll never go back.  it has a much better flavor and although it's still probably loaded with sodium, i know what it consists of.

it literally takes about 5 minutes to prepare and i had all the ingredients already on hand.  you can even make a big batch of this and store it for next time.

try this out and i swear you won't ever buy the packaged stuff again! 

what you need
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried minced onion
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 3/4 tsp crushed beef bouillon 
  • 1/4 tsp white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper 
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 dash onion powder
mix everything together and you've got it!

enjoy.
