Clean Taco Seasoning

Friday night I did a little experiment. All day I kept saying what can I make for dinner that is quick and easy because I really do not feel like cooking. So I thought well finally we have tomatoes, lettuce, tortillas, cheese in the fridge at the same time. This sounds like a simple thing but for some reason we never have lettuce and tomatoes at the same time. I decided we are having tacos tonight baby!! Then I got to thinking a little more I am going to make my own taco seasoning mix. So I googled a few different recipes and found one I liked. Went home and whipped it up with a baby on my hip (sounds like a country song). It was a success, my husband liked it, so it's a keeper. I did add a little bit more cumin because it was a little to bland for me. Then to make things really exciting I made a taco salad the next day with the leftovers. Just an FYI, it was a lot spicier the second day because the flavors had time to develop. BAM-is all I can say. But I do need to add that I am Irish and have found I love hot food but my tongue is usually on FIRE. Enjoy and have a spicy evening ;)

2 tsp. chili powder
1 1/2 tsp. paprika
1 1/2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. onion powder
3/4 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. salt
Dash cayenne
Combine all ingredients.

This replaces a packet of store bought taco seasoning.
Use as you normally would.
