Homemade Taco Seasoning

When I meal plan for the month usually every Tuesday has taco's on the menu...and I'm not kidding.

We used to by the small packs of individual seasoning packs but since we eat tacos so much we decided to start buying the value size. We were still buying a new pack of the seasoning every other week, and that stuff adds up! I also looked at the ingredients and they were not the healthiest. So I searched Pinterest for a homemade recipe and came across a good recipe from one of my favorite bloggers, Carolina Charm. We got the ingredients this weekend and I put it together in about 5 minutes. So easy! 
Yields approximately 1.25 cups of taco seasoning, which is more than 10 packets of store bought taco seasoning!

I poured two ingredients in at a time and then put the lid on and shook it to mix it well, and then mixed again after it was all in there together.

1/4 cup Ground Cumin
1/4 cup Garlic Powder
1/4 cup Onion Powder
1/4 cup Chili Powder
4 tbsp Ground (or crushed) Red Pepper 

Mix it all together!

- 2 tablespoons per pound of meat 

I can't wait to make more! Happy (early) taco Tuesday!
