I love Frugal Fridays. I am not always frugal, but I do love the challenge of being frugal. At this point in life I need to be frugal, so the challenge is on. Actually I should attempt to live frugally all the time. I think that would fall under good stewardship. I am not promising anything–for all those who know me IRL! So do not even try to hold me to it!
I have made taco seasoning on and off for at least the lat 7 years. I am not opposed to purchasing a large bottle at Sam’s Club, however I am opposed to purchasing those little packets due to the cost. No matter the cost I like mine better. I can adjust the favor to suit my family. And honestly it takes 5 minutes.
1/2 cup Chili Powder
1/3 cup Cumin
1 to 2 teaspoons Red Pepper Flakes (adjust this to your family)
1/4 cup Garlic Salt (or you can use minced garlic and salt)
1/4 cup Oregano
1/8 to 1/4 cup Onion Powder or Minced Onion
1/4 cup Paprika
Mix and store airtight container. Use just like the packets. 3 T to a pound of meat.
