This mix is salt free. I season to taste as I cook.
I've never tried to figure out how much salt to add to the recipe in order to make it "right," but when others have asked, I've calculated that maybe the 1/2 cup that would fill the jar would be about right. This is based on an estimate of about1 tsp salt/pound of meat.
Taco Seasoning Mix
1 c chili powder
3/4 + c paprika
3/4 c cumin
1/2 c onion powder
1/3 c garlic powder
1/8 c cayenne or other pepper power (adjust to taste, depending upon variety of pepper)
Mix together and store in a quart jar. Use 1/8 c for every pound of meat, or taco seasoning packet called for in a recipe.
Tip 1: If you inadvertently get steam in your jar while measuring, a few grains (scant tsp) of dry white rice will help the mix from sticking together.
Tip 2: I labeled my jar with a piece of wide masking tape. I wrote the name, "Taco Seasoning Mix" on the top with a sharpie, but I also wrote the recipe on the tape, too, with a ball point pen. Then when I need to replenish my stock, I don't need to look up the recipe.
