Taco Seasoning

After starting the tradition of Mexican Monday in our house over three (can that be right?!) years ago, I’ve been making my own taco seasoning. Or rather, followed the recipe I found on allrecipes.com. This taco seasoning has a nice subtle kick but if you really want to crank the heat, include the crushed red pepper flakes that I omit. I make a large batch (triple the recipe below) at a time and keep it in an air tight canister.

Taco Seasoning


  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)


  1. Combine all ingredients. Store in an air tight container. Use in your favorite recipes. Makes 1 ounce.
