Happy Monday! Welcome to another edition of my Weekly Pinterest Project, where I attempt one of the thousands of crafts/recipes/tips, etc. that I’ve pinned on Pinterest. Kind of my way of keeping me accountable re: trying new things, ha!
This week, I’m showing you how to make a very easy chili and taco seasoning. Never, ever buy the storebought taco seasoning again because this recipe is so easy and much cheaper! I like how it’s versatile and can be used as a chili and taco seasoning. The stores trick you into thinking you need a separate seasoning for chili and a different kind for tacos. Not true!
I mixed the following ingredients together in a glass bowl:
4 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder, onion powder, crushed red pepper flakes, dried oregano
2 teaspoons paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons ground cumin
3 teaspoons sea salt
4 teaspoons black pepper
Combine and store in a glass container for up to one year.
I quadrupled the recipe since we use a ton of taco/chili seasoning, but feel free to experiment. When a recipe calls for taco or chili seasoning, use approximately 1 1/2-2 tablespoons of the homemade seasoning. Enjoy!
