Homemade Taco Seasoning & Homemade Taco Sauce

One of the meals that we really enjoy in our house is Taco Salad. After browning my hamburger I always add a can of drained pinto or kidney beans (is that weird?). One of my girlfriends has recently turned me onto homemade seasoning vs. packaged. I made this the last time we had Taco Salad and it was pretty good.

1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp paprika
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp minced onion
1/2-1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 garlic powder
1/4 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp pepper

My mom always used Nacho Doritos for the chips in the salad and it is sooo yummy that way! Of course, all the regular toppings like tomatoes, olives, cheese, sour cream, and red onion (another weird thing my family does) are also added. Mom also had the ultimate best Taco Salad Sauce of all times and I'm gonna share it today!

1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil

Mix vigorously (I usually use a shaker mixer). Be sure to chill and enjoy!
Sounds really simple but it truly is fabulous! Be sure to just pour a little on the top because it's easy to overdo.


  1. Yummy!
    We love taco salad as well. We use kidney beans in ours and we use red onions and doritos too! :)
    However, the sauce I make is mayonnaise, sour cream and taco seasoning. It's yummy! :)

  2. Sound yum! I am always looking for new ideas in the kitchen, thanks for this post. I will definitely be trying this!

  3. Sounds sooo good! Thx for sharing! I'm gonna try!!
