HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE TACO SEASONING

A simple combo of zesty spices create a perfectly flavored Taco Seasoning:

  • onion powder
  • garlic powder
  • paprika 
  • dried oregano
  • Red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper

One batch of this Homemade Taco Seasoning is equal to about two store-bought packets, but it’s also packed with much more flavor and freshness. 

OPTIONAL ADD-INS

  • The pepper flakes are enough for us, BUT if you like a little more heat, I suggest to stir in a bit of cayenne pepper. Start with mixing in about 1/8 of a teaspoon, taste, and decide if you want more.
