This is so simple to make, and sooo good! You will wonder why you ever purchased premade taco seasoning. Add this to anything you use taco seasoning in. I use it in beef or chicken, and in chimichangas, quesadillas, and of course, tacos.

Taco Seasoning Recipe

  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt

Pour seasoning together in a mortar and pestle or a bowl. Stir together until well combined. This is enough seasoning for approximately 1.5 pounds of meat. You can store this for a month in a closed container.

Variations: This seasoning is mild, but still has lots of flavors. People that are very sensitive to spices have still enjoyed it. If you would like to make this taco seasoning “hot” add 1/2 tsp ground black pepper and 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper.
