HOMEMADE TACO SEASONING

Taste and Create was started as a food event by Nicole from For the Love of Food.  The whole purpose of Taste and Create was, and has been, and continues to be to create a community of bloggers who test each others’ recipes and share links. The participants of the event are paired together and try a new recipe from one another's blog.
This month I was paired with Jennifer from FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. I love being paired with someone I've never been paired with before I inevitably learn sooooooo much, and find great new recipes.  I chose her TACO SEASONING recipe. I chose it because I too am always looking for the perfect homemade seasonings. 

She's right it works great for chicken, beef, pork–whatever you are trying to spice up for Mexican night!   
I'm ditching my old go to recipe and using this from now on!

Jennifer's Recipe
Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix
1 tablespoon of chili powder
2 teaspoons of onion powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of paprika
1 teaspoon of oregano
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tsp cornstarch
3/4 cup water
  • Mix all the dry ingredients together and use with your taco meat. 
  • Pour the water in the pan and cook just like you would for tacos. 
  • The amount above is the same amount that is in one packet of taco seasoning mix at the store.

I love finding a recipe that you'll use all the time! This looks like one of those. Yum.

Good cooking is an art, as well as a form of intense pleasure... A recipe is only a theme, which an intelligent cook can play each time with a variation. ~Madame Jehane Benoit, Chef (1904-1987)
