Okay...I'll bite...how does this make a cup???
This was really good. We liked the extra little zip to it (my 6 and 8 year-olds agreed). I will be using this from now on for taco night - which we have at least twice a month.
I cook for my elderly mother so anything with cayenne I replace with paprika with just a bit of cayenne. I always use homemade seasoning mixes now and dressings because most packaged store bought has msg or some sort of bad preservatives in them.
This is very similar to one I have used for a couple years. I added cornstarch to the one I usually make so did that with this one too, replacing the flour. This is good, it would have been a bit hot for my hubby so I reduced the cayenne to 1/2 tsp. My other recipe doesn't call for the coriander, I think it is a nice addition.
This was very easy and fun to make with the kids! Even my husband liked this homemade taco seasoning!
