Homemade Taco Seasoning

When I realized that taco-seasoning packets were simply a mix of things I probably already had in my kitchen, it was a revelation. And that discovery ultimately resulted in the best homemade taco seasoning I’ve ever had. Cocoa might seem like an odd addition, but it gives the blend a deep, rich flavor.

Prep time 10 minutes

Makes about 3/4 cup (75 g)

1/4 cup (30 g) chili powder

2 tablespoons (16 g) tapioca flour (optional, see note)

4 teaspoons ground cumin

4 teaspoons dried oregano

4 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder

4 teaspoons (24 g) sea salt

2 teaspoons granulated garlic

2 teaspoons onion powder

2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

Combine all of the ingredients in a lidded container. Shake well and store at room temperature.
