Homemade Taco Seasoning


Recommended Posts

A friend of mine just sent me this recipe for Taco seasoning. I plan to try it instead of purchasing the packets. I'm thinking it would keep longer than a month??? Your thoughts?





3 tablespoons chili powder

1 tablespoon salt (I used a little less)

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper

3/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (I used a little more)


Just mix it all together and store in an airtight container for up to one month.


For tacos, ground 1lb ground beef, drain, return to pan. Add 2-4 tablespoons (I use 4) of the mixture above along with 3/4 cup of water and cook until desired consistency.

I'm trying to kick the salt, so I have this one:

Taco Seasoning Mix (Low Salt)

2 Tbs Chili Powder

2 Tbs Flour

2 tsp Cumin

2 tsp Oregano

1/2 tsp Onion Powder

1/2 tsp Garlic Powder

1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper


1. Combine all ingredients in a zip lock bag and shake until completely mixed. Add to browned ground beef along with 1/2-3/4 cup water and cook until reduced to desired consistency.

I'm thinking that the glass jar idea is probably the best for storage, too. I hate that funny taste that things can take on when they are stored in plastic containers. It's kind of like that old left-in-the-refrigerator-too-long taste. In glass I would expect it to last a good long time.
