Homemade Taco Seasoning

When I can, I really try to make my own food.  I have this thing with fake food and fillers as ingredients.   But my kids really love Taco night, and I would resist it because I hated those ready-made, super salty seasoning packets.  But then I thought why couldn’t I make my own seasoning?  I can.  You can.  It’s so easy, and trust me, the flavour is SO much better!

Next time you have tacos, make some homemade taco seasoning!

Homemade Taco Seasoning


  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder (I didn’t use this (I just browned onions with the beef))
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. This is enough seasoning for about 1-2 lbs of ground beef.
  2. Just add it to the beef after it has been browned and drained.

This spice is also great rubbed on ribs, chicken or pork, in fajitas, tossed in salads…anywhere you need a little extra Mexican flavour!

Have a delicious day!

  1. This was a big hit at our house! I subbed the onion powder for minced onions and simmered the cooked beef and spices in a little broth until it condensed and the onions were nice and hydrated. I personally think it tastes better than the Lawry’s Brand. Thank you so much for posting!

  3. This was so good, my family loved it and declared this is finally the one (I’ve been trying out a few different recipes). I added 1 tsp or so of red pepper flakes because we like things spicy 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
