Taco Seasoning


It’s like a sand painting. Until you mix it up anyway. It is art and food. Many things often are. I always like food to look appealing but my husband says that it is the taste that matters. I figure that it if doesn’t look good, who would taste it? LOL! If you can pull off both, why not? I love this recipe because you can tweak it according to your taste. (Much like Tom Hanks did with his “project” in “You’ve Got Mail” before he met up with his online crush.) So, once you tweak the taco seasoning to your liking, use as much or as little as you want to flavor your meat. No premeasured packaged taco seasoning packet required . . . .


1 T chili powder

1½ t ground cumin

1 t sea salt

1 t fresh ground pepper

½ t paprika

¼ t garlic powder

¼ t onion powder

¼ t crushed red pepper flakes

¼ t dried oregano


Place all ingredients in a spice jar and shake until combined. Add 1-2 tablespoons taco seasoning and ½ cup water to cooked meat and simmer for 10 minutes. Serve in Mexican dishes. Garnish with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, olives, guacamole, salsa, sour cream, etc.
