This homemade taco seasoning is a savory blend of spices featuring all your Tex-Mex favorites like chili powder, garlic and onion powders, and many more!

Have you ever been out to a restaurant and gotten a burger or a nice steak and tried to replicate that same flavor at home but couldn’t get it quite right?  

Most of us can’t and its because we aren’t trained chefs. We also don’t have access to the same quality food, equipment, and materials many restaurants use.

Now, with this recipe, you can at least recreate a quality taco seasoning mix at home. Let’s get started!

How to Make Homemade Taco Seasoning:

Place all spices in an airtight container or jar and make sure to tighten the lid.  Shake to mix!

This recipe makes enough to use for several servings. That’s all there is to making it at home.

Honestly, we use this blend in most of our Tex-Mex meals. Whether it’s enchilada filling, fajitas, or tacos this recipe is our go-to spice blend.

The taco seasoning is being scooped up with a measuring spoon.

As you can see, our homemade taco seasoning is easy to make. The best part is that it is versatile so that you can adjust it to your family’s tastes.  

All you need are a few spices, an airtight container and five minutes to make a taco seasoning.  I’d love to know what you think or how you’ve changed it to make it your own!

Taco Seasoning Tips:

The brand of chili powder you use for this recipe will determine the overall color of the final mix. For example, some brands will cause the mix to be more red than others.

Additionally, some chili powder brands tend to be hotter than others. Just keep that in mind. I recommend using your favorite brand, that way you’re already familiar with the heat.

Bored with regular seasonings? Try adding a half a teaspoon of chipotle powder or Mexican oregano.
