This homemade taco seasoning recipe is a go-to for me. Sure, you can purchase pre-made blends, but for the cost, you can make much more with herbs and spices you probably already have in your cabinet. Not all homemade spice blends are worth the investment. Taco seasoning, however, is worth doing on your own. Plus, doing it yourself allows you to control the heat level and saltiness, something you can’t do with premade spice blends.

Let’s Get Started


1 Covered Dish

1 Tbsp. Chili

1 tsp. Garlic Powder

1 tsp. Cumin

1 tsp. Paprika

1/4 tsp. Cayenne

1/4 tsp. Black Pepper

1/2 tsp. Onion Powder

1/2 tsp. Oregano

1/4 tsp. Sea Salt

Let’s Cook!

Combine all spices together in the covered dish and shake to mix.

Use or store up to six months.

Enjoy in tacos, chili, and on fries.

    This taco seasoning is next level! Our homemade tacos were getting pretty stale but this brought new life to them. We can now put tacos back in the regular rotation of easy dinners! If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s a must! Also make the MicrowaveChef Taco Salad with it!
