Taco Seasoning (Gluten, Grain and MSG Free)

Taco seasoning is very easy to make and will save your body a lot of unnecessary sodium and MSG.  Those little packages (even many organic ones) have mono-sodium glutamate hidden in their ingredients.  Why is this bad?  MSG is a food flavour enhancer that can cause depression, obesity, migraines, disorientation etc. To learn more about the foods that contain MSG as well as it's hidden names read, MSG, I Found You.
These are some great reasons to simply make your own seasonings.  This being said, do read the ingredients in your spices to ensure that there are simply the spices you want. This recipe is on the mild side, you can adapt the heat by adjusting the amount of chili peppers and cayenne.

  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano 
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne (to taste)
  • chili flakes (to taste)
  • 2 teaspoon black pepper

  1. Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container.
  2. Use approximately 2 tablespoons for 1 pound of meat.
