Tonight I made beef tacos for dinner, and as I reached for the spice jar I made specifically for beef tacos I was thinking about what a time saver it is to have the spices already mixed and ready to go. So I thought I'd share this recipe time saver tip with my readers.
We all have some recipes that require a bunch of spices, right? Well instead of measuring out the spices for the recipe each time I make it, what I've been doing to save myself time is so simple. I triple the amount of spices needed, and then I put it all into a spice jar, give it a stir and then label it for whatever recipe it's for, like "Fish Taco Seasoning" or "Taco Seasoning" and then I just sprinkle it onto the meats that I'm cooking and don't have to measure it out each time.
Here is the seasoning mix I did tonight, which I use on my beef tacos:
2 teaspoons dried minced onion
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried minced garlic or garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
Triple it, put it in a jar, and you get to skip measuring it all out the next few times you make beef tacos! You can save old spice containers or buy some spice containers here on Amazon.
Enjoy getting dinner on the table a little bit faster :)
