Easy Homemade Taco Seasoning Recipe

Homemade Taco Seasoning RecipeThis homemade taco seasoning recipe will surprise you. It's super easy to make and calls for just 6 ingredients, all of which are common seasonings you probably already have in your cabinet.

I first started making my own taco seasoning when I wanted to make tacos and discovered I was out of the store bought packets. Now I make my own every time because it's simple and I don't have to worry about what starch or filler has been used to keep the spices from clumping together. While many of these clumping agents are natural, I'd rather not pay for something I don't need. Plus, corn starch is a common filler in these pre-made packets of seasoning and a lot of people are allergic to corn.

And really, it's more than just the filler we're paying extra for, isn't it? Convenience and colorful packaging add up fast. This recipe cuts all that out, saving you money. Win!

This recipe for taco seasoning makes enough to season one pound of ground meat or beans, just like a packet of seasoning from the store would. You can make it up in about one minute! It doesn't get much simpler than that.

      Hi Janette, it really all depends on what you’re making.

      I would add a little to “taste” to whatever recipe and go from there. 🙂

    I would love recipes for GLUTEN FREE gravy/sauce mix like simply organic mushroom sauce In little packet
    or GLUTEN FREE Alfredo sauce mix from Knorr per example.
    Thank you so much for your work! ?

    Everyone is in love with Old Bay Seasoning but I always like Chesapeake Seasoning better. Which is not made anymore, commercially.
