Candid Cook: Taco Seasoning

Have you ever done sand art? You know, where you take those little clear plastic containers and fill them with different colored sand?

Yeah, this is better than that. In what way, you ask? Well, here's why:

1) It smells better.
2) You can make it over and over again.
3) You don't have to figure out what to do with it when you're done. It goes in the spice cupboard.
4) It tastes amazing and you'll save a ton of money on MSG-filled taco seasoning packets.

This is the way my taco seasoning looks before I shake it up. I love this recipe, and my sister wants to pin it (thank you Pinterest!) and so it becomes a blog post.  Happy day!

Taco Seasoning

1/4 cup chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp paprika
2 Tbsp cumin
4 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
Optional: If you like your taco seasoning spicy, add 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper or 1 tsp red pepper flakes

Put it in a small container with a lid, then shake it up good! It makes a little over a 1/2 cup seasoning.
