Homemade Taco Seasoning

I've seen recipes for homemade taco seasonings floating around Pinterest for a while now and decided to give one a try. We thought it turned out way better than the store bought version, plus you can easily adjust the seasoning to fit your heat preference. All of ingredients are just common spices, and all you do is mix them together. It's great to know exactly what is going into your food- no yucky preservatives or additives. Next time I will triple the recipe to have more left over. Try this next time you are making tacos rather than buying the store bought stuff!

Homemade Taco Seasoning

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Mix all spices together until well combined. Use immediately or store in an airtight container in your spice cabinet and use as needed.

To make tacos: Brown meat and drain fat. Add 3 Tbsp of mixture, 1/4 cup water. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 3 minutes.
