Homemade Taco Seasoning





Ingredients:

2 tablespoons hot Mexican-style chili powder
2 tablespoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon ground chipotle
1/2 tablespoon ground cayenne
1 tablespoon granulated garlic
1/2 tablespoon dehydrated onion
1/2 tablespoon Mexican oregano
1 teaspoon ground jalapeno
1/2 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
pinch salt

Directions:
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Store in an air-tight container.

Use 2 tablespoons mix to equal one packet prepared mix.

Yield: about 2/3 cup


My thoughts:
I've been making a few Tex-Mex taco type things lately (recipes to come!) and came up with this mix so I don't have to measure out a bunch of spices each day. It is on the spicy side but you can make it milder by using mild chili powder and slightly less of the other ground chiles if you'd prefer.
