Here's the recipe I use 1 cup dried minced onion 1/3 cup cup chili powder 2 tablespoons cumin (I actually add an extra tablespoon-we love cumin) 4 teaspoons crushed red pepper 1 tablespoon oregano 4 teaspoons garlic powder 2 teaspoons onion powder
Combine all ingredients and store in a cool, dry place.
When you’re using for Mexican dishes, use about 1 tablespoon or so per 1 pound ground beef, or chicken or beans. More if you like the extra flavor.

I had to make my own taco seasoning just last weekend when I started cooking and later realized that I didn't have any more of the packaged mix. It came out so good I don't think I will ever go back to the pre-packaged seasoning!
1 Tbsp ground cumin 1 Tbsp chili powder 1 Tbsp garlic powder 1 Tbsp onion powder 1 tsp black pepper 1/2 tsp seasoning salt (optional) 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
That's it. It came out really good and I just stored the left over seasoning in a gladware bowl. Hope you enjoy!

Another idea is to just grill the chicken and veggies put in tortilla or shell and top with a good salsa. That can boost their veggie intake as well.
Combine all together and store in an air tight container in a cool dry place for up to 1 year. Yield: 3 tablespoons.

My kid would happily eat meat, chicken, fish, or lentils cooked with packaged taco seasoning every day (in a salad, mixed with brown rice, in a whole grain tortilla all with healthy topings), but I worry about the salt and chemicals I know is in the packaged mix. Is there a healthy alternative? I'd love to find a similar tasting spice blend, perhaps one I could make myself, that I could mix in large quantities and keep at hand so weeknight dinners are fast and easy.
