Tabatha's Taco Seasoning Mix

Tabatha Bucci


One night for dinner my husand wanted me to make nachos. I had everything for it, but no taco seasoning for the meat. So, I started playing around with my spices and I came up with this recipe. And, he loved it. And now, I don't ever buy prepared taco seasoning mixes any more.

How to Make Tabatha's Taco Seasoning Mix


  • 1Combine all and store in an air tight container until needed.

    Occaisionally, I like to add 1-2 tsps of Chipotle chii Powder to it as well.

    Also, if 1 tsp of Cayenne pepper is not hot enough for you add more. Otherwise, if it is too hot, you can use 1/2 tsp for medium and 1/4 tsp for mild.
  • 2For Example:
    1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
    Put back in pan and add 2-4 Tbsps. of the taco seasoning and 2/3 cup of water; mix. Cook on med-low for about 5-10 minutes. Stirring occaisionally. Serve on tacos or tortilla chips with toppings.
  • 3You can also use this seasoning on chicken as well for chicken tacos or Quesadillas.
