Taco Spices

IMG_8556

I don’t know how you guys are, but in this household we love our tacos – both the authentic Mexican style, and the probably a little bit more Scandinavian style with more greens and veggies and less beans and rice. We eat homemade taco at least once a week, and one day I read the ingredients on the pre-made spice mixes we usually bought, and was just horrified of all the crap (sorry!) they put in them. From that day, I have made my own Taco Spice mix and will never go back to the pre-made ones. It’s just too easy to make it yourself, and it taste thousand times better. As an important bonus, you avoid all the extra stuff that you for sure don’t want (because who wants whey, sugar, potato starch and citric acid, just to mention some of the things, in their taco?).

Homemade Taco Spices

2 tbls Chili Powder
1 tbls Cumin
1 tbls Paprika Powder
1 tbls Onion Powder
1 tbls Garlic Powder
2-3 teaspoon Oregano
0.5-1 teaspoon Sea Salt

Optional for the tough ones:
0.5-1 teaspoon Red Chili Flakes

I usually make at least a double batch when I’m on it. Store in an airtight container, but just remember that it’s no additives in it so it won’t hold until 2020. Use it as you would do with the pre-made bags (brown meat, chicken, fish or tofu, stir in spices and add a little bit of water and let it simmer until wanted texture).
