I am replacing all of my packaged foods with homemade versions so when I ran out of packages of taco seasoning I knew it was time to make my own. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to make and happy to find discover that I already had all of the ingredients needed in my cupboard.
I love mexican food but I don’t want to feed my family all of the msg that is included in the store-bought taco seasoning packages. So, if you are ready to ditch the store-bought taco seasoning with a real food homemade recipe you should try this out. My family agrees that the homemade version tastes better as well, score!
Homemade taco seasoning is so good and very easy to make. It is also less expensive than store-bought packages. You can spice it up easily to fit your families preference. My husband and I like ours with more of a kick than our kids so I am able to customize the taco seasoning to fit our individual tastes.

- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- ½ teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 3 teaspoons ground cumin

- I store my homemade taco seasoning in a small mason jar with a leftover parmesan lid for ease of use.
