Homemade Taco Seasoning


I haven’t given up the OREOs yet, but we are making steps towards a lifestyle where we make healthier food choices. It seems half our friend base is trying out the Whole 30 or has decided to eat Paleo, I am so proud of you….. but not that committed yet. We are over here just trying to decide whether to give the kids regular goldfish or the Horizon cow crackers, haha. One step I have made though is making my own taco seasoning. It is SUPER easy, SUPER cheap, & SUPER better for everyone involved (except the folks making the store bought taco seasoning).


Here is what’s in my bowl….6 tablespoons of chili powder, 4 teaspoons of cumin, 3 teaspoons of paprika, 2 teaspoons of garlic powder, 2 teaspoons of onion powder, 1 teaspoon of black pepper. If you like your taco seasoning with a kick add 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper. 


Mix all the spices together. I store mine in a small jelly jar (any air tight container will work). Use 2 tablespoons of mix per every pound of meat. Enjoy!


I bought several of these spice at Dollar General for only 99 cents each! I hear Aldi has great deals on spices too!
