Taco Seasoning (without the chili powder)

Taco Seasoning (without the chili powder)

Here is a recipe that uses only fundamental ingredients. Every other recipe I have found for taco seasoning has chili powder in it, which is a mix itself that has many of the same ingredients as taco seasoning, but in different proportions. This recipe takes chili powder out, but puts its ingredients and proportions back in. Now you have full knowledge and control of all of the ingredients. Adjust the red pepper to your heat preference. I would rate the heat level for this at around medium-hot, so adjust the red pepper as you see fit. I hope to see other variations spring out of this one.

Where I come from (Calif) Chili Powder is just that...the powder from dried, seeded ground chilies. At the big chain grocery stores I shop I find that Spice Island, Schillings and McCormick all have "Chili Powder" and there is only one ingredient...ground chilies.

This is really good, except I omitted the salt. One huge advantage of making my own seasoning mixture is that I can control the sodium. In this case, I add the necessary salt to taste in each individual dish. If the dish contains salty ingredients like tomato sauce or cheese, often no additional salt is necessary.

one ounce is 2 tablespoons which is usually what a packet of taco seasoning is. This is a great seasoning for tacos. Thanks
