Taco Seasoning

JM Avallone


We love tacos! but personally we prefer to add more seasoning then the store bought kit offers so I used to buy that big container of the seasoning, we are trying to cut our salt intake so I had tossed it and forgot. I went to the cupboard to make some tacos last night only to realize I had just the shells what to do what to do..Make your own that's what you do! cheaper better and tailored to your own liking.

How to Make Taco Seasoning


  1. mix all ingredients: use 3 tablespoons per 1 pound of meat. ( I only use turkey).
  2. while browning the meat use some of the bullion, I use better then bullion paste careful the salt content is high I used less salt in the dry mix then most so if you love salt add more.
  3. after the meat is browned add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water.
  4. I suggest you make double or triple the amount and save it. it is so much better then those packets and way less sodium. I was also lucky I had all organic spices on hand.
