If I have a recipe that calls for taco seasoning but there isn't any in the house, can I substitute chili seasoning instead?
You can, or you can see if you have the stuff to make your own. This is what goes in taco seasoning: 2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons hot smoked paprika
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
That's Alton's recipe, btw. We don't buy it in packets anymore, we just mix our own and keep it til we need it.
