Taco Seasoning Made from Scratch

This is an easy, tasty and low-cost Taco Seasoning you can make ahead of time, save in a glass container and have ready to go for any of your favorite Mexican meals. There are no additives, hidden sugars or preservatives. Whole30 Compliant.

Many prepackaged seasonings have additives that aren’t always the best choice for our bodies. However, I get it, it’s convenient to grab a few packages and have them on hand as a quick go to. I have found that if I have my pantry stocked with the basic herbs and spices, I can make any prepackaged seasoning at the blink of an eye, without having to make a trip to the grocery store or sacrificing my family’s health or taste. My go to spices are Simply Organic (link)

I want to share with you one of my go to seasons that I always have made ahead for tacos, fajitas, grilled chicken, etc.


1 ½ tsp            Garlic Powder

½ tsp               Onion Powder

1 tsp                Oregano

¼ tsp                Cayenne Pepper

2 tbsp              Chili Powder

¼ tsp                Paprika

1 tsp                Sea Salt

2 tsp                Cumin

I typically double or triple the batch to make a large quantity and store it in a mason jar to have ready to go for any of our favorite meals.
