Homemade Taco Seasoning!

Hey guys!! So as you may know, store bought taco seasonings (you know, the ones in those little packets) are often filled with chemicals & other junk to thicken the “seasoning” & also to make it last for a long…long…long time. No bueno, in my opinion, ESPECIALLY when it’s so easy to make your own & store it easily!

There are many recipes floating around out there for taco seasoning, but I just wanted to share what I use & what works in our household! The ingredients below is used for one pound of meat. So feel free to double, triple, quadruple the recipe to save it in your pantry for later! Most of these things will already be in your pantry or on your spice rack, so it should be fairly easy to make! :)


1 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
1/2 teaspoon oregano
2 teaspoons course sea salt (I like pink Himalayan salt)
1 teaspoon black pepper

1) Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl.
2) Store in an airtight container. I like to use a mason jar to store!

Easy, peasy!! Enjoy!!!
