Yep - this is it. The ONLY taco seasoning you will ever need again!
You won't believe how simple it is to make your own taco seasoning with things you likely already have on hand.
I keep this mixed up and ready to go in a mason jar at all times. I love making my own seasoning blends because I know exactly what is in them, plus I can adjust them to suit my family's taste.
Generally, I use about 3 tablespoon of this mix per pound of meat. But feel free to add more or less to suit your family's taste. I recommend starting with 3 tablespoon then tasting and adding more if needed.
How to change it up:
- This mix is very mild. If you prefer a spicy taco seasoning add a tablespoon or more of cayenne pepper to the mix! Just be aware that a little goes a long way, so if you add more, do so at your own risk.
- Replace about 2-3 tablespoons of the chili powder with Tajin chili and lime seasoning to give your mix a little zip.
- Add about 1 tablespoon or so of dried oregano for something different!
- Swap the traditional paprika for smoked paprika to give this taco seasoning a smoky flavor.
Side Note: I swear by Bloemer's chili powder! I have made this with other brands and it's always great, but Bloemer's is the best! Bloemer's is a small local company and is available in the Louisville, KY area in most grocery stores, but if you aren't local - then you can order online by clicking the link above. (I am not an affiliate for Bloemer's and don't get anything for promoting them)
