Homemade Chili Powder

This recipe is pretty free form, but to alter the taste alter the paprika or the cayenne. To make this even better (if you can get them) grind dried ancho peppers into a powder and use them in place of the cayenne.

My husband is very salt sensitive and diabetic. Many of the taco seasoning packets found in the store contain sugar and lots of salt. Many also contain a thickening agent (usually corn starch) that just adds calories and is not really necessary. Mix this homemade version up ahead to use instead for healthier Mexican-style food.

About 2 Tbsp. equals 1 regular packet for seasoning power. Use 1 Tbsp. for a milder flavor.

Be sure to read the label on your chili powder. It is a combination of spices. Most do not contain salt or sugar, but some might.

If you like the little chunks of onion or garlic in your seasoning, use dried, minced onion or garlic instead of the granulated or powdered version. You will need about twice as much as the amounts listed and it will change the nutritional information slightly.

If you are cooking for someone on a low sodium diet, use this recipe instead of taco seasoning. This recipe is the equivelant to one package of taco seasoning (or 3 tablespoons.) Adjust the strength of any ingredient to your taste.

Oriental Ramen Seasoning Copycat
Very Good 4.0/5
(3 ratings)

I just looooove the flavor of the Oriental flavor ramen, but don't want the MSG or high salt. Here is a copycat that tastes just like it, without the sodium. I use it in everything now, and add salt to taste.

This is the seasoning for the crab cakes... so add the calories 19.2 per tbsp to the recipe and divide by 24. That is for the serious counters :)

These spice-flecked, crisp fires will perk up your taste buds. Serve them with a lean grilled hamburger and a thick slice of onion on a toasted whole-wheat bun.

I love this recipe! It can be used as a sauce for grilled meats, a dressing for salads or steamed vegetables, or as a marinade for tofu or other lean proteins. You will always find it in my refrigerator.

This is a home made version of the steamed milk I like to get from Starbucks. It's much cheaper and just as good!
