Homemade Taco Seasoning uses every day spices, can be whipped up in minutes, stores well and can be used in many recipes.
Cinco de Mayo is next Monday, May 5th. I thought I would dedicate this week to Mexican recipes.
First up is my recipe for Homemade Taco Seasoning. I know you are probably thinking it’s just as easy to buy taco seasoning at the grocery store but I will tell you Homemade Taco Seasoning has NO MSG, store bought does. No one likes MSG, but it is out there in a lot of items at the grocery store. Here is a simple way to cut back on MSG.
I love Mexican food, I hope you enjoy the recipes I will share this week.
- 3 tbsp. chili powder
- 1 tsp. oregano
- ½ tsp. garlic powder
- 4 tsp. cumin
- ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
- 2 tsp. paprika
- 1 tsp. sea salt
- ½ tsp. black pepper
- 2 tsp. onion powder
- 1 tsp. coriander
- Add all the spices in a bowl and mix to combine. Store in an air tight container (I used a canning jar) in a cool, dry place.
- I generally use 2 tbsp. of taco seasoning in place of a taco seasoning packet.

The meat mixture is a combination of beef, beans and taco seasoning (here is my homemade recipe for taco seasoning). […]
