Menu Monday – Homemade Taco Seasoning


This Homemade Taco Seasoning (from has become a staple in our house!  Pre-made Taco Seasonings from the store are full of junk…preservatives, MSG, soy, milk…why do you need milk in taco seasoning??  This recipe is super easy to make, easy to make in bulk & store to have on hand, & super tasty with a kick!

I use a heaping tablespoon’s worth of the seasoning per pound of ground beef, ground turkey, shredded chicken, shrimp, etc.  There are lots of options!  I usually double or triple the recipe & keep the leftovers sealed tight in the freezer.  Keep these spices stocked in your pantry & you’ll never need to buy taco seasoning again!

Homemade Taco Seasoning


  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  Store in an airtight container.

Easy peasy.  ENJOY!!
