Homemade Taco Seasoning

Since I have been gluten free I need to be careful to make sure that any spice packages I buy do not contain gluten.  I know that McCormick has a Gluten Free Taco Seasoning  – but hey – why not make it yourself.

Years ago I purchased a book called the The Complete Tightwad Gazette by Amy Dacyczyn. I think that Amy put out a newsletter call the Tightwad Gazette with helpful tips on being frugal and this book is a compilation of all those newsletters.  I really have gotten a ton of helpful tips and a few laughs as well.

This taco recipe is from her book.

6  teaspoons of Chili Powder

4 1/2 teaspoons of Cumin

5 teaspoons of Paprika

3 teaspoons of Onion Powder

2 1/2 teaspoons of Garlic Powder

1/8 to 1/4 teaspoons of Cayenne Pepper

Mix all the ingredients together and store in an airtight container.  This homemade mix is twice as strong as the store-bought one, so only add half as much.
