Homemade taco seasoning can be used in all of your favorite tacos, chilis, and more!
Bland food can totally ruin a meal for me - so I'm definitely a fan of using lots of spices and jazzing up my food. Cooking healthy and homemade food pretty much requires good use of seasoning or else it'll be totally boring (both to cook and to eat!)
I use taco seasoning a LOT in cooking - In soups and stews and all kinds of tacos (lentil tacos and potato tacos are my favorites.) You can use it to season crispy tofu and add it with a dish with black beans, rice, and avocado. Another one of our frequent dinners is these vegan sheet pan nachos! I like to toss the taco spice mix with the corn and beans.
It can also be used to add flavor to homemade chili. Overall, taco seasoning has a super versatile flavor profile and can be used it all kinds of Mexican or Tex Mex inspired dishes.
I find that homemade spice mixes have a fresher, bolder flavor than the kind you can buy at the store in the packets.
I love buying organic spices in bulk, which makes it even easier to make my own seasoning mixes when I need some and not have to run to the store last minute during dinner prep.
- Chili powder
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Black pepper
The one and only step to this recipe is simply mixing all of the ingredients together. I like to use a whisk to get rid of any clumps.
Storage: Add to a jar and store for up to 1 year. Label the jar so you don't forget the date!
A typical packet of taco seasoning contains 2 tablespoons. This mix makes 8 tablespoons. If you just need it for one recipe, you can adjust the serving size in the recipe card.
