Homemade Taco & Chili Seasoning Mix


Those big batches take about five minutes to throw together (you’re just measuring a bunch of spices, then stirring). Each portion costs less than the packaged varieties, and it doesn’t have any of the extra ingredients you might find in a store-bought mix (anti-caking agents and preservatives? I think not). Plus, the basic mixture works for both tacos and chili. The only difference is in the preparation: Chili gets canned tomatoes and beans and a bit of cocoa powder, which adds depth and richness, while tacos get a splash of vinegar and a touch of brown sugar, giving them an irresistible sweet-hot tang.
