Taco Seasoning

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.

Taco Seasoning

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.
