Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix

Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix

When we started making these taco bowls, I also began making the taco seasoning mix from scratch. Honestly, there’s almost no reason not to. It’s as simple as mixing together six spices you probably already have in your pantry anyway! No weird preservatives and a lot less sodium than the store-bought stuff, and it tastes just as good. I haven’t done the calculation, but I would guess you probably save money making your own too. Take 5 minutes to make a batch and you’ll all be set for taco night for months to come!

Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix

from Annie’s Eats


  • 4 tablespoons chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 3 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


In a medium bowl, whisk all of the spices together until well combined. Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

To use: Brown 1 lb of ground meat in a large skillet (I do ground chicken most often, but ground turkey or ground beef would be great too). Sprinkle two tablespoons of the taco seasoning mix over the meat and add 3/4 cup of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has been absorbed. Use in tacos, burritos, etc.
