Make your own Taco Seasoning, Dry Onion Soup Mix, and Ranch mix and store in small mason jars. These are healthy alternatives to those in the store. I have made the taco seasoning and kept it for a while, it is amazing! These are often seen on FB and other sites.

Recipe from Metabolic CookbookTaco Seasoning:
1/2 cup chili powder
1/4 cup onion powder
1/8 cup ground cumin
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon sea salt
Put ingredients into a jar and shake.

Dry Onion Soup Mix:
2/3 cup dried, minced onion
3 teaspoons parsley flakes
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons turmeric
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

Mix all ingredients in a jar, then give the jar a good shake. I’d recommend shaking the jar to mix the ingredients well before each use.
Use 4 tablespoons in a recipe in place of 1 packet of onion soup mix. Store this in a dry, cool place.

Ranch:
5 tablespoons dried minced onions
7 teaspoons parsley flakes
4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Mix together and store in an air tight container.
For dressing: Mix 2 tablespoons dry mix with 1 cup mayonnaise and 1 cup buttermilk or sour cream.
For dip: Mix 2 tablespoons dry mix with 2 cups sour cream.
Mix up a few hours before serving, so the flavors all blend.

In my opinion, since I love to cook, these can also be used as seasonings for other dishes like a ranch chicken, taco seasonings can be used in chili, and onion soup mix is good to season beef or fish as well. And, you can mix a few tablespoons of them together to create a whole new flavor profile and add some lemon or lime zest for a little kick.

HAVE FUN!

Look out for new blogs! I’m firing it up!
