Homemade Taco Seasoning

by Nanny Bubby

When it comes to pre-packaged seasoning mixes, I don’t trust them. Often, they are filled with MSG, corn starch, stabilizers, etc. Once I realized how easy it is to duplicate those seasoning by making my own, I have never looked back. Here is one of the easiest Mexican flavored seasonings that work on almost any dish. Enjoy!

Total Time:

10 minutes




  • 1 Tbsp. Chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp. Kosher Salt
  • 1 Tbsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 Tbsp. Cumin
  • 1 Tbsp. Onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp. Garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp. Oregano
  • 1 Tbsp. Black pepper


  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl with a wired whisk. That’s it
  • Store in a sealed container up to 6 months.



Most packaged seasoning packets have 2-3 Tablespoons of seasoning in them. To substitute this Taco seasoning mix for store bought, sprinkle 2-3 Tbsp. homemade seasoning on your meats before serving.
