Tasty Notes By SpiceRallY

  • Generally, taco seasoning calls for regular paprika. But, we have done a little flavor twist in our recipe using both regular and smoked paprika. So, bear in mind that you can just go with one variety instead of both, depending on what you have in hand.
  • Leave out the salt, or decrease/ increase its amount according to your preference.
  • If you prefer more heat, you can increase the amount of chili powder in your recipe.
  • Crushed red pepper flakes are optional, yet we recommend using it since this ingredient adds a nice color and zest to this blend.
  • You can store this homemade taco seasoning mix in a well-fitting glass spice jar/container for up to 06 months when kept in a dry, dark, cool place in your pantry.
