Homemade Seasoning Mixes


One way that I same money and time is making my own seasoning blends instead of buying them premade. Also, you are not eating silica. We use the taco seasoning all the time. I can season the meat, the rice and even the sour cream with taco seasoning. I mix the onion and ranch mixes with low fat sour cream for a healthy dip. Any mix can be used to season meat before it hits the grill. Remember to shake before each use because the contents will settle.

Taco 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. I use this to season taco meat, add it to soups, and add it to rice.

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. This is great to season meat for the grill. But, also makes a great dip.


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 low fat dressing: Mix 2 tablespoons dry mix with 1 cup Sour Cream and 1 cup buttermilk or regular milk. Add squirt or two to add a zing that replaces the mayo.
For dip:  Mix 2 tablespoons dry mix with 2 cups sour cream and add a squirt of lemon juice.
