Homemade Taco Seasoning
When it comes to spices, in my opinion, you can never have enough.
It’s the worst though when you either run out of your favorite seasoning or find the seasoning you purchased to lack flavor (or sometimes, be too salty).
That is why I love making my own homemade seasoning whenever I can.
This homemade taco seasoning mix is perfect for Taco Tuesday, putting in Homemade Chili and anytime your food needs a little kick.
What You Need to Make Homemade Taco Seasoning

- Ground Cumin

How many servings does this recipe make?
This will make roughly 4 Tablespoons of seasoning. You can double or triple the recipe as needed.
How can I make mine more spicy?
If you want to increase the spice level, add a ½ teaspoon of crushed red peppers (red pepper flakes). The first time you make your own taco seasoning, you will learn your own personal tastes and how to adjust it to your own likely the next time.
How do I store this homemade seasoning?
Store your seasoning just like any other seasoning. In an airtight container such as a mason jar or spice jar. Make sure to store in a dry place.
How do I use my own homemade taco seasoning?
Just like with taco seasoning packets, add your spice mix to your pound of meat or ground meat and adjust the amount to your liking. It truly is the best homemade taco seasoning.
