The Best Homemade Taco Seasoning

The perfect amount of spices come together in the homemade taco seasoning!  You will never buy taco seasoning from the store again!

Homemade Taco Seasoning

 I have continued my healthy eating habits and goals that I made back in December.  Now don’t get me wrong.  I ate like a fat kid and got more ice cream cones than one should consume on our cruise, but I have tried to maintain a healthy diet back at home.   One of my favorite meals to make are turkey tacos.  I make a big batch at the beginning of the week and have them almost every day during the week.  Tacos are the best.  Seriously.

As I was making my weekly batch of turkey taco meat I reached into the cabinet to grab a seasoning packet.   There weren’t any there!  What would I ever do without unseasoned meat?  So I pulled out the computer and began my search for the perfect seasoning.

 I had all of the spices in my cabinet.   It took only a minute to throw them all together.  The first recipe that I tried was a little to spicy for my liking.  So I tweaked it to my liking and found the perfect taco seasoning just for you.  It was amazing!  I can’t believe that I have never made my own taco seasoning before.  It is WAY better than the store bought packages and I know that your family will love it too!

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
Instructions
  1. Combine all seasonings together and store in an airtight container.
  2. I used one recipe in one pound of ground turkey. Recipe can easily be doubled and use more or less to taste. I also like to add ½ cup of water to the meat and seasonings to make the meat more moist.
