Taco Seasoning

I love blending my own spice mixes at home.  You can adjust the seasonings to your liking, use less salt than store mixes and buy many whole spices in bulk, grinding just before you need them to increase shelf life and freshness.  

Taco Seasoning

1 tablespoon whole cumin
2 teaspoons black peppercorns
2 tablespoons chili powder 
1 teaspoon paprika 
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 
1/2 teaspoon onion powder 
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes 
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 

1. Grind cumin and peppercorns in a spice or coffee grinder until you form a fine powder.
2. Add remaining ingredients and process until mixture is well blended.  
3. Transfer to an airtight container.  Label and store in a cool, dark cabinet.
