  • Recipe for homemade taco seasoning?

    So my hubby made tacos last night for the family and I decided I would have a taco salad. Uh, no.....I looked at the ingredient list for the seasoning and guess what? Wheat flour and MSG. Great! So, does anyone have a good seasoning recipe for tacos?

    This is all you'll ever need. It's incredible.

      Cumin, coriander (optional), chili powder, paprika, cayenne, black pepper, garlic, jalapeno, and onion until it smells right. For a pound of meat, I usually use a couple tbsp chili powder, a tsp paprika and cayenne, 1.5 tsp cumin, 1/2 an onion, diced, 6-8 cloves garlic (most folks'd only want 2 or 3 cloves) 2 jalapenos and salt and pepper to taste.

          It's close. You could just mix up one batch and try it out to make sure it's palatable, but I like to use just a LITTLE bit more (1 tsp more) than what the recipe makes. I mix up a whole bunch of it and use about 3T/lb.

            This is the one I use:

            That whole recipe is probably about the right amount for 1.5 lbs... I'm not entirely sure, I make a big batch and just add it to taste. I usually add a little tomato paste to my taco meat, as well.

              I take the KISS approach. Good quality smoked paprika to taste. A bit of chipotle powder if I want to "kick it up a notch."

              I have been eating Mexican food for most of my 67 years. Smoked paprika/chipotle is all I need.
