Taco Seasoning

Our favorite DIY easy homemade taco seasoning blend! Full of bold, fiesta flavor for tacos, burritos, fajitas, soup, etc.

We finally ditched store-bought seasoning packets for this quick, homemade taco seasoning! It's a great way to save money and control the ingredients, with no additives or excess sodium. This recipe yields about 3 Tbsp. (or one store bought package). I love making a larger batch (tripling or quadrupling the recipe) and storing it in a sealed glass mason jar to have ready when needed. If you like a kick, try adding cayenne pepper and/or red pepper flakes. Ground chipotle is also a great twist - I love the smokiness!

A couple of my favorite recipes to use this is the Lentil Taco Soup (pic below) and these super easy and satisfying Portobello Fajitas (so good!)

I'd love to see how you guys find ways to use it too! Come join The Garden Grazer on Instagram 🍓 and share your creations!

Yields about 3 Tbsp. (double/triple/etc. as needed)

1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 1/2 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. paprika (I use smoked)

Measure all ingredients in a small bowl and mix to combine.
Note: if preparing for later, store seasoning mix in an airtight container at room temp.

  1. Hi, I love your site. One quick question, if I may, if I put a little extra garlic and onion powders in it, would it ruin it? I love garlic and onion.


    1. Hi Katerina! Glad you're enjoying the site :) Adding more onion and garlic powder would definitely not ruin it - go for it!! It's a pretty versatile seasoning. Hope you enjoy!
