Kentucky had a mid-March snow day, so I decided to sort my spices; which immediately morphed into me experimenting with Homemade Taco Seasoning recipes! This recipe is super easy… Enjoy!
*Helpful Housewife Hint: This recipe yields approximately 7 tablespoons of seasoning. The average store-bought seasoning packet contains around 2 tablespoons of seasoning. So, use 2 tablespoons of this seasoning in place of any single store-bought packet… or use as much as you want!
What you’ll need, aka. INGREDIENTS:
3 tablespoons Chili Powder
3 teaspoons Cumin
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 1/2 teaspoons Paprika
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
2 1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoons Black Pepper
What to do aka. INSTRUCTIONS:
Measure the ingredients and combine them in a small bowl.
Enjoy all the beautiful colors, and spicy smells! Then mix all the ingredients together.
Store the taco seasoning in an airtight container… I was lucky enough to have this adorable mini-mason jar on hand.

I’m super excited to experiment with spices… so stay tuned for many more spicy creations and recipes!

Great post! So many people forget that what you can buy in those packets is likely already sitting in your pantry 🙂
I know, right? Also, it made me feel super cool when I added my taco seasoning to my taquitos last night. I should rearrange my pantry more often! Thank you.
Nice! We always try to make our own mixes, it really cuts down on salt and preservatives.
It really does cut down on salt and preservatives… plus, it’s super tasty! Thank you.
