Lately I’ve been addicted to anything cooked on the grill, not to mention anything containing taco seasoning, which is a new thing for me. I’ve never been a huge fan of those little packets that you purchase in the spice aisle, due to their high spice and sodium content. However, after discovering this recipe for homemade taco seasoning I’m quickly changing my whole opinion on the subject of taco seasoning. I want to put it on, in, or, over just about everything I make. This grill marinade is the first of three taco seasoning recipes I’ll be sharing with you this week. It’s amazing on steak, but would be just as great on chicken or pork.
- 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
- 1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1/2 Teaspoon Onion Powder
- 1/4 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
- 1/4 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
- 1/2 Teaspoon Paprika
- 1 1/2 Teaspoons Ground Cumin
- 1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
- 1 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
- 2 Teaspoons Taco Seasoning
- 1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt
- 1 Tablespoon Light Brown Sugar
- 2 Tablespoons White Wine Vinegar
- 1/3 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Mix all taco seasoning ingredients together, and then pour into a small glass jar to store.
- In a small bowl, whisk together all of the marinade ingredients.
- Always store spices in glass containers, so that the color and smell does not leach into the container you are using.
- Place the marinade in a large Ziploc bag with whatever meat you are marinating, squish it around until it is well coated, and then allow it to marinade for at least 8 hours.
- Grilled steak is a great use for this marinade.
- Add 2 cloves of minced garlic to the marinade.
