Good afternoon, savvy savers! Today, for the Making More out of Monday Meals series post, I want to share with you my Homemade Taco Seasoning! Many of the ingredients you will have on hand, and those you do not you can purchase at the Dollar Tree, with the exception of the cumin, which often goes BOGO at Kroger and Winn-Dixie. I can make this seasoning, which I store in baggies or jars from the Dollar Tree, for only $0.15 per serving!
Compare this price with that of conventional packet seasonings, and you are at a 80% savings!
Here’s how I make it:
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
1) Mix all ingredients together.
2) Store in snack-sized baggies, hinge jars, or jelly jars.
3) This mixture will last one year, in a pantry.
4) Please note, 3 Tablespoons is equal to one packet of mix, to 1 cup of filtered water!
