Ok... I've been on a bit of a blogging hiatus. Things are a bit of a gongshow around our house right now. We are in the midst of doing renovations, de-cluttering, and general spring clean up. Hubby also left on Monday for work, and I've been working more than normal the past few weeks. Excuses aside, I've missed writing my recipes!
I realized that I've mentioned homemade taco seasoning in a couple of my recipes, but I have yet to provide the recipe that I use. This is full of warm spices, and gives a well-rounded flavour, minus all the MSG, sugar, and preservative crap.
1/2 cup chili powder
1/4 cup cumin
1 1/2 tablespoons sea salt
1 1/2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
1 1/2 tablespoons black pepper
1 tablespoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1. Mix all the spices together and transfer to a mason jar.
2. You're done... have a glass of wine cause you're awesome!
To make normal taco meat I, generally, use 3-4 tablespoons. We like a lot of spice, so start out with 1-2 tablespoons and work up from there! Enjoy!
