Taco Seasoning

This is a great homemade substitute for the salty packets of taco seasoning. With all the flavorable herbs, its tastes as good but is much healthier for you! I make it in a 4-cup tupperware so that it can be mixed up well and stored easily.

8 TBSP (1/2 cup) dried onion (chopped or flakes)
4 TBSP (1/4 cup) onion powder
4 TBSP (1/4 cup) chili powder
2 TBSP (1/8 cup) salt 
2 TBSP (1/8 cup) oregano
2 TBSP (1/8 cup) cornstarch
2 TBSP (1/8 cup) crushed red pepper
2 TBSP (1/8 cup) garlic powder
2 TBSP (1/8 cup) cumin

Use 2 TBSP of the seasoning mix (equal to 1 packet) for every pound of ground beef, turkey, chicken, steak, shrimp, veggies, etc.

1 4oz serving of seasoned meat/vegetables has 260mg sodium from this blend.

Make a quick taco dip by mixing 2 TBSP seasoning into 16oz sour cream or greek yogurt and serving with tortilla chips.
