Gooseberry Patch Recipe #9 – Taco Seasoning Mix

I would have finished up my last few recipes a week or two ago, but my camera ate my pictures and wouldn’t give them up! I have it fixed now, so I will finish up my last two recipes today and tomorrow. Are you ready for a giveaway?

Here we go with recipe #9:

Taco Seasoning Mix


  • 3/4 c. dried, minced onion
  • 1/4 c. salt
  • 1/4 c. chili powder
  • 2 T. cornstarch
  • 2 T. red pepper flakes
  • 2 T. dried, minced garlic
  • 2 T. ground cumin
  • 1 T. dried oregano

Makes a pretty little pile, eh?



Mix all ingredients well; store in an airtight container. Use 4 tablespoons mix in place of a 1 -1/4 ounce package of taco seasoning mix. Makes about 1-3/4 cups.

So simple and so frugal!



And the lowdown on the cost? Another freebie. I had all the ingredients (although, I will admit, I did not use them very often). I LOVE it when I find a way to save a dollar, and didn’t even realize it was under my nose!

I used it this week to make up some taco meat for a church lunch. My boys absolutely loved it and told me that it was MUCH better than the other stuff I had been using. I will admit, it was pretty darn good!
