Homemade Taco Seasoning

After finding myself out of taco seasoning the other day,
with a half-made pot of taco soup on the stove,
I hastily googled, "homemade taco seasoning."

After browsing several, I knew this would be the one.

This recipe comes from Perry's Plate, one of my favorite food blogs.
So, I made it, AND...
The soup tasted better than with the usual store-bought packets.
Natalie's taco seasoning has all the expected ingredients...plus a few secrets...
namely cocoa powder & oregano,
bringing your hum-drum taco seasoning up a few notches.  :)

Moral of the story:  next time you're in a pinch for taco seasoning (or in a pinch to pay a dollar-plus on one measly sodium-loaded packet), this is your answer.

I'm planning on making this in bulk to use in place of store-bought packets from now on...

Perrys' Plate Taco Seasoning

For one packet's worth of taco seasoning (3-4 Tbsp):
1 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp cocoa
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (I would personally leave this out if young children were eating it)
1/8 tsp ground coriander

For about 4-5 packets worth of seasoning, quadruple the above recipe.  
Combine all spices together and store in an airtight container.  Use in place of store-bought taco seasoning!
