Homemade Taco Seasoning

Mini Tacos

Can you believe that I used to think you HAD to buy taco seasoning in those little packets? Oh the things I have learned... It's so easy to mix this up yourself and I like it much better because it doesn't have MSG, salt and other fillers, or nasty preservatives. Best of all, it tastes wonderful!

Homemade Taco Seasoning

  • 1/4 cup instant minced onion
  • 2 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 2 tsp. crushed dried red pepper flakes
  • 1-1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. dried marjoram
  • 1 Tbsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp. instant minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
Mix it up and store it in a jar. Use 2 Tbs. per pound of meat. This recipe will make about 6 pounds worth of seasoning mix. (I tripled it because we eat a lot of taco meat!)

  1. I actually use a similar recipe. It may even be the same. Funny how making things yourself is so much cheaper and the flavor is superior.
