Homemade Taco Seasoning

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes

Ditch that high sodium taco seasoning from the store and make some Homemade Taco Seasoning instead! It’s so easy to spice up your Mexican recipes with this homemade seasoning mix.


  • 1 ½ Tablespoons chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced onion
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander


  1. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl or mini mason jar with lid.
  2. Store in airtight container in cool, dry place.


  • Add more red pepper flakes for a spicier taco seasoning!
  • I usually double or triple this recipe when making it so that I have it on hand at all times!
  • For taco meat to put on a taco or salad, I would usually use about 1 ½ Tbsp per pound of meat. I would also add in about ⅓ cup water and 1 Tbsp cornstarch. If it’s ground turkey I would use less water (doesn’t seem to soak it up as well).
