i'm a regular paula freakin dean

It's taco night!! and i forgot the taco seasoning at the store today..(WAH WAH) so i used this recipe from and it came out super yummy and i had most of the ingredients on hand!  Here is the recipe:


  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

couple of things, i did not have oregano, so i added a pinch of parsley instead.  i didn't add any salt (although i'd like to say it's because i'm so healthy, it's not, i just forgot. ha) and i didn't have paprika either.  Even with some missing ingredients, it came out really good!  And doesn't it just seem healthier/yummier when you make something from scratch?

needless to say, i was a happy lady on this delicious taco night!  Anyone else have a good taco seasoning recipe they want to share?
