Homemade Taco Seasoning

When you make your own taco seasoning, you know exactly what goes into the mixture, no hidden chemical ingredients. Plus, it still tastes amazing!


  • 1/3 cup chili powder
  • 1/3 cup cumin powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika (this adds a great flavor!)
  • ¼ cup sea salt


1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and stir until combined.

2. Pour into a glass jar (I love these cute spice jars).

3. Store in your pantry and lasts indefinitely.
