I hear so many people tell me they are concerned with their salt intake, but don’t realize there are simple steps you can take to reduce it. Also, everyone knows I’m a big fan of “do it yourself” so making my own taco seasoning just makes sense. While it is important to know that depending on what spices you buy, there will still be some sodium, what you wont have is the added MSG. Yuck! This recipe will make several batches.

Taco Seasoning

  • 4 Tbsp Chili Powder
  • 3 Tbsp plus 1tsp paprika
  • 3 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 Tbsp plus 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Combine all of the spices. Then, to make a 1 pound batch of seasoned meat you will use 2 heaping tablespoons of the seasoning and 1 cup of water. This equals what one package would give you.
