DIY Taco Seasoning

If you know me, or are familiar with this blog, you know that I try to make as much from scratch as possible.  For me, this includes putting together my own seasonings instead of buying them.  Why buy taco seasoning when you probably have all the components right on your own spice rack?  Plus you get the added benefit of eliminating from your diet those weird ingredients you can't pronounce on the packets you buy at the store.  Why put those chemicals in your body if you don't need to? 

Homemade taco seasoning is quick to put together, and will keep in an airtight container as long as all the other spices on your spice rack.  The best part about making my own taco seasoning is that I can control the quantities of everything - if you like it spicy, add more cayenne, etc. You can adjust it to suite your preferences, which in the end makes it a million times better than store bought.  Make a bunch of it so you will always have it on hand when you need it.  So easy and so smart....so go do it now! ☺

DIY Taco Seasoning

2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp ground cumin

1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp cocoa powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp coriander

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.  Transfer to an airtight container for later use.
