Homemade Taco Seasoning



“My Disney Princess name is Taco Belle…”

What a cheesy internet quote!  But it’s still cute.  I mean, I do enjoy tacos.. .. and of course my daughter Belle… and often times Taco Bell!… this quote is actually very fitting for me!



I use this copy-cat recipe to replace the pre-made seasoning packets you can buy at the grocery store – you know the type… the little paper sleeves that cost a couple of bucks.  I like having bulk seasoning in my cupboard, no exception to the taco variety!  I’ve tweaked this one a few times and now I think it’s just right. 🙂



If you’re looking for a quick homemade gift idea, look no further.  This makes a great gift for Christmas gift baskets, father’s day bundles, etc.



It’s super easy to make and packs a serious punch of flavor.  You won’t be disappointed.  Did I mention how cheap it is to make?  🙂  Enjoy xoxo

  • 4 Tablespoons Chili Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Cumin
  • 5 Teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 2 Teaspoons Black Pepper
  • 2 Teaspoons Corn Starch

Makes 3/4 cup = 12 tablespoons = 6 servings (when using 1 lb. of meat)

Example recipe for seasoning:

Ground beef for tacos:  In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown 1 pound of ground beef and then drain the fat.  Next add two tablespoons of homemade taco seasoning and 1/2 cup of hot water.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.  Use as a filling for tacos, burritos, etc.
