Homemade Taco Seasoning

Tons of recipes call for a packet of taco seasoning (including the Taco Chili recipe that I posted a couple days ago). You know, the kind that looks like this:

But the dirty little secret about taco seasoning in a packet is that it's FULL of sodium and lots of other scary things. So I set out to mix up my own taco seasoning that I can use in place of the packet kind! It's a little more healthy, and it means you never have to worry about whether you have a packet on hand in the pantry. Win win! 

Recipe adapted from here.

3 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp paprika
1 1/2 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp onion powder
1/4 tbsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt

1. Mix all ingredients together and store in spice bags or jars.
2. 4 tablespoons of the mixture can be used in place of one "taco seasoning packet."
