You likely have all the ingredients handy to whip up a batch of Homemade Taco Seasoning. Once you see how easy it is to make a batch, you’ll never purchase pre-made seasoning packets again!

Yesterday I posted a recipe for a delicious Taco Soup.  The recipe called for a packet of Taco seasoning, with an option to use a homemade taco seasoning.

I thought it might be helpful to post a recipe for the homemade version, in case you don’t have your own favorite recipe. There are hundreds (thousands?) of homemade taco seasoning recipes floating around Pinterest and the internet.

Today I am sharing my recipe.  I arrived at my current version after trying quite a few different recipes, ultimately adjusting the ingredients and quantities until I got it just right.

I don’t know if you’ve checked the labels on your favorite taco seasoning lately, but there is some yucky stuff included in those little packets – ewww!  If that’s not motivation enough to make your own seasoning, I don’t know what is.

Plus, it’s realllllly easy to mix up a batch of the homemade stuff.  So easy in fact, you will wonder why you waited so long to make your own mix.

RECIPE NOTES

NOTES:
- If you are doubling/tripling/etc. this recipe, I recommend using table salt (i.e. Morton's). Kosher salt is fine for a single batch.
- This recipe is easy to make in bulk. I typically make a quadruple batch and store it in a tightly covered, small mason jar. Use 2 tbsp. of seasoning mix in place of a seasoning packet.
