How to Make Homemade Taco Seasoning


  • 1Mix
  • 2The amounts listed above make up about 2 Tbsp. of homemade taco seasoning mix — the perfect amount to replace one store bought 1.25oz packet.
  • 3If you’re like me, you’ll want to make more of this and store it in your pantry for ease of use next time. So, here’s the recipe quintupled:

    1/4 C. plus 1 Tbsp. Chili Powder
    1 1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
    1 1/4 tsp. Onion Powder
    1 1/4 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
    1 1/4 tsp. Dried Oregano
    2 1/2 tsp. Paprika
    2 Tbsp. plus 1 1/2 tsp. Ground Cumin
    1 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. Sea Salt
    1 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. Black Pepper (optional)
