Homemade Taco & Chili Seasoning

Why buy pre-packaged taco or chili seasoning with all sorts of ingredients you can't even pronounce!  Plus - all that sodium!  Here is a great recipe you can use and store in a container in your cupboards for whenever you need!!

Homemade Taco & Chili Seasoning

1/4 cup chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons paprika
2 tablespoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons sea salt
4 teaspoons black pepper

Combine and store in an 2 cup airtight container. When making chili or tacos start with 1.5 tablespoons of seasoning and add more according to your tastes. I typically use 3-4 tablespoons in my chili and 2 tablespoons in my tacos.
