TAYco Seasoning (BEST Taco Season EVER!)

tacomeat
Our NUMBER 1 Go To Recipe for Homemade Taco Seasoning. A perfect spice and flavor! Use for your favorite Taco Dish, including your Taco Chili! On Tacos! In Salads or Dishes! You’ll never buy packaged season again!

1T Chili Powder
1/2T Dried Oregano
1 Chicken OR Beef Broth Cube, crushed to powder
2tsp Cumin
1tsp Garlic Powder
1tsp Dried Minced Onions
1/2tsp Paprika
1/2tsp Course Black Pepper
UP TO 1/2tsp Sea Salt (I used 1/2tsp)
1/4tsp Chipotle Powder
1/3c-1/2c Water, or to taste

-Optional:
1/8tsp Cinnamon (I skip sometimes)

Pre-mix Seasoning. (I use Chicken Broth for Chicken Tacos. And, Beef for Beef Tacos.) Cook Meat, adding in Season. (I also mix in about 1/4c Refried Beans.). Simmer and stir til juices cook down and flavors blend nicely. At End, I splash with Lime Juice (Small splash. Maybe 1tsp, if I had to guess). Quite TAYsty!

Try above Recipe AS IS. Most online recipes call for 1tsp of Salt. This is LESS Sodium than those. Even less than some packaged Seasonings! But, if you “Insist” and are trying to cut Salt, try skipping the Broth Cube and just using Sea Salt.
