DIY Taco Seasoning mix

1/4 cup chili powder
1 1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Mix all ingredients together in an air tight container, we used a canning jar. It nice to know that there is not MSG in it, and we will never be out of it on taco night. I think it tastes way better then the packets.

Substitute 2 rounded tablespoons for 1 packet of taco seasoning.

I found this recipe on Smashed Peas and Carrots website.

Stay tuned by following our blog for more fun recipes. We have a Stir fry seasoning mix coming soon.

Thanks for the recipe we will have to give this a try. We are always on the look out for a good taco seasoning and have yet to find one in a store that we really like.

sounds like a great recipe; I like to make up herb mixes too, like lemon seasoning; I just dry and mix all my lemon flavored herbs together, like lemon balm, lemon thyme, lemon basil, dried lemon zest, etc and use on fish.

Reply about rabbits, yes I do raise them for meat. I like the Rex because of their fur, but New Zealand Whites and Californians are the traditional commercial meat breeds because they are bred for the best feed conversion, especially on traditional pellet diets. Dress out % of live to dressed weight is usually around 50%, tho some times it will be even better than that. Excellent information can be had by joining the American Rabbit Breeders Ass. I encourage you to join for a year even if you don't plan to show. You will get a lot of info from their publications and some good networking. You might also check Yahoo newslists for a bunny list for your state or area. Your local 4H person will probably also know of breeders in the area. My 'bible' is Raising Rabbits by Ann Kanable. Rodale Press 1977. when I left TX 20 years ago and lost touch with the show & commercial world of raising rabbits, someone in the eastern states was working on a breed of rabbit they called the Homesteader, a breed that would do well on home grown feed without the pellets. I don't know if that ever became an official breed with the ARBA or not. I know in Ireland where they have less predators, they raise the rabbits on pasture in individual 'arks' like a small chicken tractor which is moved daily. If you have a nice patch of clover lawn and a predator proof fence this might work for you. Or let the clover get a bit long and mow it in small sections to feed to them or spread out thinly to dry like hay. more questions? you can email me: hysong AT cableone DOT net
