I’ve been debating about posting this one for a while, because it’s just really so simple. Is it even a recipe? I mean, it has ingredients and directions. I’d classify it as a recipe, but is it blog worthy? I’ll let you decide. Whether it is, or it isn’t, it sure beats that those pre-made taco seasoning packets from the store!
I made Pressure Cooker Taco Soup the other day and it sparked that I really need to share that foolproof recipe with you guys. You seriously can’t go wrong when you’re just throwing all your ingredients in a pot and letting it simmer down to a delicious, wholesome, meal.
Before I share that taco soup recipe, I figured it was best if I shared with you my secret ingredient so that you can properly make that pressure cooker soup at a moments notice. Three words, homemade taco seasoning. It’s easy, yummy, and keeps just as well as your other spices if you store it properly.
A few years ago, I didn’t even know what spices were concocted to make the perfect taco seasoning. When we were in need of a quick dinner, I’d just pop by the store to grab that little packet of mystery and make a quick taco dinner. Fast forward, the kids are napping, I’m running behind on supper and NO mystery packets. A quick Google search later and I was able to craft up my own perfect homemade taco seasoning.
Anyways, I told you that this was simple. I’ve jabbered enough. On to the recipe! Add all your spices in a bowl, pour them into an air tight container. Save for later. That’s literally it. If you mess up and add too much of something, just add more of the others. You have your base, now you just need to weak it until you find what works for your family!
- 1 tbs chilli powder
- 1/4 tsp cayenne
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 red pepper flakes
Add all ingredients into a bowl and stir
Store in an airtight container
As a southern family, we like our food a little more on the spicy side with a tad more garlic than tradition recipes call for. If you’re worried about the spice, feel free to omit the cayenne. If you don’t care for garlic, don’t omit it, but cut it to 1/4 teaspoon instead of a 1/2.
