Step 1: Making the Taco Seasoning

Making the Taco Seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp garlic granules
  • 1/2 tsp onion granules
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp Chili Powder*
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt


*Note: For the best result, use this Chili Powder recipe. Otherwise, any chili powder blend, of your choice, can be used instead.

Next, in small bowl, mix all ingredients and store in airtight container β€” alternatively mix the spices right in the jar.

Use as you would any other taco seasoning. To add to tacos, use 2 to 3 tablespoons of this mixture, plus 1/4 to 1/2 cup water to every pound of filling. Simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently until there is very little liquid left in the pan. The amount of water and spice used will ultimately depend on what you are cooking and how spicy you like you food.

    A question, please: "plus 1/4 to 1/2 water to every pound of filling"β€”Is that referring to cups of water or some other measure? Thank you.
