Homemade Organic Taco Seasoning Recipe

TacoI recently found myself at the grocery store in front of the taco seasoning packets searching for an ingredient listing that didn’t remind me of chemistry class: monosodium glutamate, autolyzed yeast extract, sugar, caramel color, and sulfites.  Why would anyone want to ingest these things?  I typically use natural food products, but this particular grocery store didn’t give me this option.  Knowing my cabinet at home was full of spices, I made this homemade taco seasoning recipe.  Not only is this version free of preservatives and unnecessary additives, but it is very economical.  Swanson Health Products offers all of these spices as 100% certified organic, so you can also get the organic foods benefits of eating healthy foods at a great low price.

Homemade Taco Seasoning Recipe

1 tablespoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon oregano flakes
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan crystal salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

In a small container, mix together all the spices. Use the mixture to season tex-mex recipes to your family’s spice preference. Store any unused portion in an airtight container.
