Delectable Tuesday Blog Hop 1/18 - Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix

If your house is anything like my house, you go through a whole lot of tacos. Well, tacos, nachos, enchiladas....any kind of Mexican will do.

Do you ever realize at the last minute that you are out of taco seasoning packets? Me too. Even with a fairly well stocked pantry it still happens.

Here is a great make at home taco seasoning to have on hand on your spice shelf or as a last minute "save your bacon" substitute.

Don't forget to add your recipe to the linky below! We all love new food ideas!

Homemade Taco Seasoning


1 tbls. Chili powder
1/4 tsp each garlic powder, onion powder, crushed red pepper flakes and dried oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp each freshly ground pepper and salt

In a small bowl, mix together all the ingredients. Store in an airtight container.

  11. What a great idea! I often get a taste for tacos, but then give up since I won't have the seasoning on hand. Now I have no excuse. I'll be making this for sure.
