Spicy Taco Seasoning

Pin It

I don’t buy packaged taco seasoning.

It has ingredients in it that I can’t pronounce,

and I have all the ingredients I DO want in my pantry,

and it’s cheaper,

and I don’t mind being able to adjust the flavor when necessary for smaller/younger taste buds.

And trust me.  You will probably want to take your toddler’s portion (or any other wimpy non-spice-eaters’) out before you hit it with this stuff!




  1. Thanks for this recipe. I’ve always used the taco seasoning packet but you’re right about all the extra preservatives, etc. I’m planning to use this next time I make tacos or burritos! 🙂

  2. Yum! We were given a recipe at our bridal shower, almost 16 years ago. We never buy Taco seasoning. Let me share my recipe, and depending on what you have, either works 🙂 I am going to try yours, though!

    (this makes a bunch and you use 2-3 T at a time with a 1/2 cup water and simmer…)

    1/3 cup dry minced onion
    2 tsp salt
    2 T chili powder
    2 T paprika
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp cumin
    1/2 tsp oregano
    2 T flour

    Just for variation… works well! I see only a little bit of difference. Love this for burritos, tacos, taco salad, enchiladas. Great stuff.

  3. I bet smoked paprika would be a nice addition! 🙂 I can’t wait to try this.
