Homemade Taco Seasoning

I love cooking with taco seasoning! I do NOT love paying an arm and a leg for each tiny little envelope. In one of my cookbooks, I found a recipe for homemade taco seasoning. The first thing I thought when I tasted it was, "Where have you been all my life?"

Not only does it taste better than pre-packaged, it is super quick, easy and cheap! It is also better for you, as it does not have preservatives in it. I figure each serving costs me around 35 cents. Compared to about $1.50 a serving that I usually pay, I'm doing a happy dance.:)

Try it, you won't be disappointed! This would make a nice gift in a jar tied with pretty ribbon as well.

Total Time: About 5 minutes

Yield: About 6-- 1/4 cup servings

Ingredients:

*I buy generic spices at Walmart and Aldi's. This will keep your cost very low.

Steps:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Stir with a whisk to blend well.
  2. Store in an airtight container. Use 1/4 cup for any recipe that calls for an envelope of taco seasoning.

Enjoy!

Great tip! How many teaspoons or tablespoons of mix would you say is in one of those packaged Taco mixes? Just so you end up with the same flavors.

Thanks Laurie! I believe each envelope of taco seasoning is 1/4 cup. So I use a 1/4 cup of this seasoning per pound of meat. Hope this helps. :)

That is such a great idea. Those pre-packaged seasonings are such a waste of money!

That sounds wonderful! I hate buying those expensive packets, when I know I could make it myself. I just didn't know how. Thanks!
