Making Homemade Taco Seasoning is so easy and so much healthier too. Mix it up with chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, black pepper, and a little cayenne. It’s the best for tacos, burritos, dips and more!
I have a love for Mexican foods that runs deep. So having taco seasoning on hand is always a must!
After looking at the ingredients of store-bought taco seasoning, which has several not so good ingredients, I decided it was time to figure out how to make my own homemade version and clean it up a little. I didn’t include any salt in this recipe but feel free to add a little if you prefer.
Believe me, once you make this recipe you will never go back to buying the packets.
How to Make Homemade Taco Seasoning
Mix all the spice ingredients together and store in an airtight container. (I actually use an old spice bottle that I had saved)
This recipe is not spicy. If you like it a little spicer, add a tad more cayenne pepper.
Use 2 TBSP with 1 pound of ground meat.
This homemade taco seasoning is absolutely perfect to use for our taco nights, burrito bowls and to make our favorite Layered Taco Dip. You can even use it to season chicken or fish or to spice up a roasted vegetable.
