How to make: Taco Seasoning

Ditch store bought taco seasoning packets and make your own! Enjoy this super fun and easy DIY homemade taco seasoning recipe!


  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes


  1. Combine al the ingredients in a bowl or small jar.
  2. Mix together or put a lid on the jar and shake.
  3. Store in an airtight container in your spice rack until you’re ready to use it!


I typically use 3/4 to all of this per 1 lb. of meat. However, if I’m making it for my kids, I only use about 1/4 of the taco seasoning mixture because they like it less flavorful. Enjoy!!
