DIY Taco Seasoning

Those little packets of taco seasoning are terrible for you.  They are full of preservatives.  Here’s a recipe that you can make and store to use in place of the packets.


  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, optional

Mix all ingredients together. Add 1-2 tbsp per 1 pound of meat.  When you mix it into the meat use a little water as well.

I doubled this recipe and stored it in a cute little bell jar.
