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.

Taco Seasoning

Cook's Notes
If you don't have taco seasoning on hand use 2 tsp. chile powder, 1 tsp. ground cumin,
dash of ground red pepper, 1 tsp. paprika, and 1 tsp. garlic powder.


Taco Seasoning
Here's another Taco Seasoning Recipes I cut out of one of the Taste of Homes Magazines.

Our Test Kitchen developed this spicy, salt-free alternative to packaged taco seasoning. Stir it into dips or gr. beef, sprinkle on chicken or wherever you want a Southwestern Flair.

4 tsp. dried minced onion
3 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

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.
