Gather Your Spices

Let’s start by taking a look at the spices you’ll need for this recipe. I recommend buying most of your spices and dried herbs in the bulk section of your grocery store. It’s not only more affordable but also allows you to portion them out into cute little glass jars at home.

The base of this taco seasoning recipe is ground cumin, which is commonly used in Mexican cuisine. You probably already have it in your pantry if you’ve made any other Mexican-inspired dishes. Another essential ingredient is paprika. Opt for regular paprika rather than smoked paprika, but feel free to experiment with a touch of smoked paprika for a unique twist. Chili powder adds a depth of flavor to fajitas and ground taco meat. Instead of using whole garlic cloves, we’ll be using garlic powder for convenience. To give the recipe a bit of a kick, cayenne pepper is the secret spice. If you have picky eaters in your household, you can omit the cayenne pepper without sacrificing too much on flavor. However, if you enjoy a bit of heat, keep it in!

Mix It Up

Once you have all your spices ready, it’s time to whisk them together. Grab a medium-sized bowl and whisk until the spices are well combined. If you plan on storing the seasoning mix for later use, simply mix it together in a glass storage container of your choice.

To use your homemade taco seasoning mix, add two tablespoons of it per one pound of meat. If stored in a cool, dry place, in an airtight glass jar, your seasoning mix will stay fresh for up to one to two years. Avoid placing it over the stove to maximize its freshness.
