Homemade Taco Seasoning

At our home, I usually have a couple packets of taco seasoning mix but one night we needed it... and I realized we were completely out. I quickly Googled homemade versions, and was surprised to see how easy it was to put together, and I had all the ingredients on hand already.

I've tried different variations on the web, and this version is my favorite version. It has just enough spice and heat that we love, and no starches or thickeners here. Just plan, pure spices.

  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 3 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 3 Tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 3 Tbsp + 1 tsp beef bouillon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp + 1 tsp black pepper

Directions: Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight glass jar (I use this one from Penzey's- the 2 cup glass spice jar.)

Note: I use 3 Tbsp seasoning mix per pound of meat.
