Making your own taco seasoning is so much better than store-bought. This homemade taco seasoning recipe is the perfect amount of spices for your seasoning
Large Batch Homemade Taco Seasoning
Tacos is of our favorite meals to eat and they also very simple to make. Being raised in a military family, my dad seemed to get stationed in Southwest states (Spending 9 years in Arizona and 4 years in Texas). We made great friends who taught us how to cook. I am so excited to share with you our family recipe for Homemade Taco Seasoning.
Homemade Taco Seasoning just taste better then store-bought versions. Plus YOU control the ingredients. No preservatives and ingredients you can’t pronounce. I like to make small batches verses bigger. I don’t believe our family will go through it as quickly as we like. To keep it fresh smaller just seems better and more manageable.
I know some of you are thinking that the prepackaged are sooooo much more convenient. Well, at times yes.
BUT if you take just 3 minutes to make a big batch of your very own seasoning, you don’t even have to go to the store to pick up those “convenient” packs. You will already have some ready to go in your pantry. Fresh, the way you like!

I will typically use around 1 tbsp of this seasoning per 1 1/4 pound of ground beef when making seasoning beef for tacos. However, please season to your taste.
Use can also use your homemade taco seasoning in:
- salad dressings
- as a rub for chicken, pork or beef
