Even though tacos are totally a staple here, they still seem like party food.
A few years ago, I started mixing my own taco seasoning.
I add it to lots of things like guacamole and Mexican-esque casseroles.
I've tried several different ones and this seems to be the favourite.
This recipe fills my small sized mason jar and lasts me several months.
*I add around 2 Tbsp to about a pound of ground meat.
3 Tbsp chili powder
3/4 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp onion powder
3/4 tsp chili flakes
3/4 tsp dried oregano
1 1/2 tsp paprika (I use smoked paprika)
1 heaping Tbsp cumin
1 Tbsp Kosher salt
1 Tbsp black pepper
1/2 Tbsp sugar (optional- We don't like it with sugar but feel free to add it if you do.)
Mix together all ingredients in a mason jar and shake until combined.
