Since my days as a Pampered Chef consultant, I have loved taco seasoning. We eat a lot of tacos, taco dips, enchiladas, chilis, and other foods that use taco dip, so we go through a lot of it.
I also have high blood pressure, and that premade taco seasoning is insanely high in salt. I’ve been looking for a taco seasoning recipe that tastes as good as my old favorite.
I’ve found one.
- ¼ cup chili powder
- 2 tablespoons ground cumin
- 4 teaspoons sea salt
- 4 teaspoons ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- Combine all ingredients in a jar with a tight lid. Shake until well mixed. Store in a cool, dry place.
This recipe comes from a brand new ebook called Easy. Homemade. by Mandi Ehman.
I’m excited to share Easy. Homemade. with you because it contains recipes for many of the foods I make (and want to make!) at home from scratch.
You know I’m the first person to reach for convenience foods when necessary – pre-made pie crust, whipped cream, and ketchup are high on my list – but we also make a lot of things from scratch.
In almost every case, cooking from scratch is healthier and better-tasting. It’s almost always cheaper, too.
Mandi’s book is on sale through Tuesday night for only 99 cents.
It will go up to $3.99 on Wednesday. Even $3.99 is a great price for this treasure trove of more than 60 homemade recipes.
