In an effort to make all of her holiday gifts this year, Camilla at Culinary Adventures with Camilla invited some of her favorite foodie bloggers to share recipes for hand-crated edibles. Over the course of the next twelve weeks, we’ll be sharing recipes from libations (last week’s theme) to cookie platters. Hope you’ll follow along for inspiration.
I’m bummed I completely lost track of dates because I could’ve shared my Homemade Baileys for last week’s Libations theme. But looks like Rebekah of Making Miracles had that covered for me!
Today I am re-sharing my Homemade Taco Seasoning for the spice blends theme. I thought about my Gingerbread Spice Mix, but I saw someone else was already bringing that to the gift basket.
The following recipe makes approximately 1/2 C of seasoning.
- 4 tbsp chili powder
- 2 tbsp cumin
- 4 tsp kosher salt
- 4 tsp black pepper
- 2 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
- Combine all ingredients. Store in an air tight container. Use in your favorite recipes.

To give homemade taco seasoning as a gift, place taco seasoning in a nice canister or mason jar and include a couple recipe cards of your favorite Mexican recipes.

I always feel so much better about using a homemade version of this stuff – tons of flavor and way less sodium. Yumm!
Thanks for sharing this, Lauren. Taco seasoning is one of the only pre-mixed blends that I still buy. Now I don’t have to!!
Nope! There’s no need! I bet you already have all of these ingredients, too.
I got a late start too Lauren, but I am glad we are here now and I am happy you shared this taco seasoning.
