Taco seasoning is something we’ve made at home, rather than buying in packets, for years! It’s so pretty and fragrant to make, and as soon as your kids learn to use measuring spoons, they can do it for you!
If you love using spices in your kitchen, you can buy in bulk and store in decorative spice jars. These are perfect for your blends, like this taco seasoning as well!
This taco seasoning is free of fillers, which are not allowed on the GAPS diet and aren’t a bad thing for any of us to skip.
Fillers in commercial taco seasoning include things like wheat flour, milk solids (both problematic for allergies!), maltodextrin, corn starch, soybean oil, silica dioxide, and more.
This recipe is so simple, it once lived as a post-it on the inside of my spice cupboard because we made it so often. Then you can use it to season taco meat, or any recipe that you make for Taco Tuesday :)
Homemade Taco Seasoning
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 1 tablespoon cumin
- 2 teaspoons salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper

Add fresh crushed garlic to meats and beans when using this seasoning.

For those of us who always use one packet of taco seasoning to for 1 lb of ground meat…..what ratio of spices per 1lb of meat should we use of your blend?
I usually use 2 tablespoons, but I think you’d want to play around and see what you think :) Good question- if I can find out how much is in a typical packet I’ll update the recipe!
