Homemade Taco Seasoning

Ready to make your own taco seasoning?

It’s one of the simpler recipes out there, and all it takes is spices that are likely already in your spice cabinet.

We also love homemade taco seasonings because they are fun to make with the kids. It’s a cool way to make taco night more hands on. The kids will get to see what exactly make that ground beef as tasty as it is. This recipe makes a similar amount to your typical store-bought taco seasoning packet. If you’re concerned about overall spiciness, you can control that by decreasing the black pepper and chili powder in the mix.
