Homemade Taco Seasoning

Taco seasoning is so simple to make at home.  I make a big batch and store it in a small mason jar.  Customize this recipe to how you like it adding in more or less of your favorite spices.  


Makes about 1 cup

  • 1/2 cup chili powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 3 tsp crushed pepper
  • 1 tsp cayanne pepper
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbl paprika
  • 1/4 cup cumin
  • 2 tbl salt 
  • 2 tbl pepper
Mix together and store in an air tight container.



  1. How much do you use per pound of ground beef?

  2. It is really to taste but I use about 3 tablespoons :)

  3. I can't wait to try this. I buy my spices at the local health store and have been trying to get completely away from all pre-packaged food... I was wondering what you mean by crushed pepper.... do you mean red pepper flakes? Or something else...
