Small Changes: Taco Seasoning

This is a packet of taco seasoning. Look at all of those ingredients. Did you know that anything labeled, "natural flavor" could be anything? You probably don't want to imagine what they mean by that.

Did you know that you can make your own taco seasoning at home, thereby eliminating the "natural flavor" and controlling the amount of salt that's in it.

It is one of the easiest things to make, and you can play with the seasonings to customize it.

Homemade taco seasoning:
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon coriander
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 


And here is Rachael Ray's recipe for taco seasoning:
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1/4 tablespoon crushed red pepper 

Remember: Just because they sell it in the store doesn't mean you should eat it.
