At our house, we eat Mexican food at least twice a month. Rather than buying pre-mixed taco seasoning from the store, I make my own with spices in my pantry. I use the below mix in burritos, enchiladas, and tacos.
Savvy Housekeeper’s Taco Seasoning Mix
- 6 tsp chili powder
4.5 tsp cumin
2.5 tsp garlic powder
2.5 tsp paprika
salt (to taste)
cayenne pepper (to taste–I like there to be a little kick, but not so much that I can’t use this spice mix when cooking for people who are afraid of spicy food.)(Yes, I said afraid.)
Mix in a bowl. Taste it. If it doesn’t taste right, adjust spices as needed.
Cost of Dish: Spices: $.50 (estimate)
In the Store: $3.69 for a 2 oz bottle in the store.
Approximate Savings: $3.19
