Taco Seasoning (aka Mexican Seasoning)

Homemade Taco Seasoning is the best! So easy to prepare with a mix of chili powder, cumin, garlic, cayenne pepper – and I add paprika, too.




  1. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together all ingredients. Store in an air tight container.


A trick we learned from cousin and fabulous home gourmet Jim Kidwell is to use a blend of various chili powders – chipotle, ancho, hot, etc. You can find them with the Mexican food in major grocery stores, at farmer’s markets and specialty spice stores.
