Homemade Taco Seasoning

I looooooove Tex Mex. Our cold winters are made so much more bearable because of my endless love of chili, taco soups and Tex Mex taco stir fry.

Rather than buy endless packets of taco seasoning, I make my own. It’s simple, cheap and gives me the option to make it as hot or mild as I want which makes it completely kid friendly. And since I always have all the spices on hand, it’s a cinch to throw together for a crock pot dinner or to store for later use.

 

 

Homemade Taco Seasoning

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp Chili Powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (use more or less depending on how much heat you like)
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Directions

  • Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl and store in an airtight jar.
  • (recipe makes about 1/4 cup. I usually double the recipe and store it in a 125ml mason jar)

    HI, I was going to make this tonight. I am using 1lb of ground beef, would you use the whole recipe?

      Hi Jori, I usually use 1-2 tbsps when I make anything with it. I mix it with about 1/2-3/4 of a cup of water and some corn starch to thicken it and coat everything. If it’s too thick, I add a bit more water. I hope it turns out well for you! I know it’s a hit in my house!
