Replace your packet of taco seasoning with this homemade taco seasoning mix! Since going gluten, soy, dairy, and more free, Mexican has become a go to for meals because, even without the cheese and sour cream (oh how I miss sour cream!) there’s still some flavor! This is a recipe I’ve had forever, I use it in multiple ways which I’ll start to share on this blog later. For now, here’s a good seasoning packet substitute.
Homemade Taco Seasoning Packet
2 tbsp of this mix equals one traditional packet of seasoning
1 tbsp chili powder (I use Simply Organic Chili Powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder (I use Simply Organic Garlic Powder )
1/4 tsp onion powder (I use Frontier Onion Powder, Organic, we buy it in major bulk because we use a lot around here!)
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (I use Simply Organic Red Pepper Flakes)
1/4 tsp ground oregano
1/2 tsp paprika (I use Simply Organic Paprika , are you seeing a trend here?)
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin (like Simply Organic Cumin )
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
+1 tbsp brown sugar per 2 tbsp of seasoning
Mix all of the ingredients except the brown sugar. When ready to use, mix 1 tbsp of brown sugar with the seasoning mix and use it in the same way as the packet directions. I also use this for a rub on steak for fajitas and more! Let me know what you think!
