There’s nothing quite as easy or delicious as a Homemade Taco Seasoning!

If you’ve seen my pantry on insta-stories or snapchat, you know that my spice collection is stocked and ready to go. I think I’d be able to whip up just about any spice mixture in no time and adjust based on my personal preferences. I mean, that’s the beauty of making it yourself right? If you LOVE garlic, add a bit more garlic powder! Want to crank up the heat, add some extra cayenne. Or if you’re cooking for picky eaters, dial down the heat a bit.

But of all the spice mixtures I make on a regular basis – none of them get used as much as my homemade taco seasoning. I use it on just about EVERYTHING. I’ll use it to season steak, or add flavor to ground chicken or turkey. I’ll throw a few tablespoons into a pot of refried beans. I’ll roast vegetables with it or add it to some chili. I’ve been known to add it into this Southwestern Lasagna. I mean, the possibilities really are endless. This DIY Taco Seasoning is not only delicious but it’s super easy to make with spices we all probably have in our pantry right this very minute! Whip up a batch and use it next time you’re doing taco night. It couldn’t be easier and I promise you’ll love it.
