Taco Seasoning

Tacos are a staple in our house – Sheridan decided about a year ago that tacos are her favorite meal.  We all love tacos so I usually try to make them for her once a week.  It’s something I can make semi healthy, yet it’s good and the kids love it.  It’s a win-win!  I had been in the habit of just buying the taco kits at the store and my mom told me awhile back that it’s much healthier to make your own seasoning.  I finally decided to try it about a week ago and it is SO easy and so good!  I’ll never use the packets again.  This is good and it has way less sodium and less calories than the packets.

I found this easy recipe on allrecipes.com


  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Directions

    In a small bowl, mix together chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, red pepper flakes, oregano, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper. Store in an airtight container.

    This makes 10 servings.  I used 2 tablespoons in my taco meat (we use ground turkey)

    Pig Rating:  Pig didn’t even notice the difference – yay!  I love when I can make things healthier without him noticing.  LOL

    Mrs. Pig Rating:  This is easy, and yum!

    Little Pig Rating:  Neither of the kids noticed either – SCORE!
