Homemade Taco Seasoning

Homemade taco seasoning should be a staple in every kitchen. It’s a great way to keep preservatives and components like MSG and extra sugar out of our food. (Plus it’s so much cheaper!) After some playing around with a couple recipes, I finally have one that we really like.

Homemade Taco Seasoning {recipe}
 
Author:
Recipe type: Sauces, Seasonings, and Condiments
Ingredients
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 5 tsp paprika
  • 4 tsp cumin
  • 3 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • just a dash a cayenne pepper
Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients together in a jar and shake them to mix. I normally use about half this mixture for each pound of beef we use, but start with a couple tablespoons and go from there to match your own taste!
Notes
Tips: Depending on the chili powder you use, you may need more or less than the 2 Tbsp. I bought some expensive stuff once and it was a lot spicier than the cheaper store brand powder. So if yours is either really fresh or really potent, you may want to cut back a bit! If your family is just getting used to eating less processed foods, try adding 1 tsp of organic cane sugar in with this mix so it seems more “normal” to them. Then back it out each time you make it. Soon enough, you won’t have any sugar in it and the package mixes won’t taste good at all!

    I love homemade taco seasoning! My recipe is a little different than yours….but not everyone has the same tastes! Great tip!

  5. Is there a good substitute for the cumin? My stomach doesn’t handle it well.

    Thanks,
    Joey

    • @Joey, I really don’t know if there is another spice with the same basic flavor. But I often times run out and just make it without. Sure, the flavor is different, but the best thing about making spice mixes at home is that you can base it off of your own taste preferences or dietary needs!
