Sometimes buying prepackaged store bought items can provide a convenience. I’ll give you that. But not when it comes at the cost of my families health. The first ingredient in packaged taco seasoning is Maltodextrin, which has MSG in it. And if you look further down the label MSG is listed AGAIN.
If you have 3 minutes you can make it yourself AND store it in the pantry just like the packaged ones. It tastes better, you get to control the amount of the ingredients so if you like your tacos a little spicier then add some more chili powder or black pepper. If you like it more mild then scale it back a bit.
Best part? NO MSG!
- 1 Tbsp chili powder
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/4 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp course sea salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container
