Mixing up your own taco seasoning is such a cinch I recommend everyone do it! I don’t know why I haven’t done a post about it before now since I’ve been making my own seasoning mix for years.
Sometimes you get a hankering for a taco and you don’t have any of those packets on hand. . . that’s how I started making my own. A trip to the store just to buy a packet of spices that I already have in my own cupboard didn’t seem smart. What a complete waste of time. And money.
You can tweak it to suit your own tastes. Maybe you like more chili powder or don’t like oregano in it. . . you can use this as a starting point to make your own personalized mix.
I usually double or triple this recipe being it will last for a while in a tightly covered glass jar.
Mixing up your own taco seasoning is such a cinch I recommend everyone do it. Not only is it a money-saver but you don't have to worry about running out of those packets.
- Combine all the seasonings together in a jar and shake until well mixed.
- Use 2 tablespoons (I use 2 rounded) seasoning mix for every pound of ground beef plus 1/2 - 2/3 cup water.
- You can tweak the seasoning to suit your own tastes. I went easy on the salt so you can salt and pepper to taste.
