Taco Seasoning

We love Mexican food! Turkey tacos are a favorite to make at home because they are so easy to put together. We used to buy the packets of taco seasoning, but in an effort to cut back on both food costs and sodium, I decided to make our own at home. These are all spices that we usually have on hand. We just add the ingredients to 1 lb of turkey meat as it browns. You could also mix it up ahead of time in bigger batches and store in an airtight container.
This recipe is a modified version of one that I found on
1-1/4 tsp chili powder
1 clove garlic, minced
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/8 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp ground cumin
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
