Homemade Taco Seasoning

Those little packets in the grocery store are convenient and easy, but so is making your own seasoning blend - minus the excess sodium and preservatives.

I customize our seasoning blends for the adults and bambinos in the house.

We love Mexican food and use this Taco Seasoning to spice up refried beans, black beans, soy beef crumbles, tofu, even veggies for fajitas.  You'll love the extra boost of flavor this seasoning blend adds, and you'll feel good about using it.


2 tablespoons chili powder (adjust this up or down based on your tolerance.  I used Indian chili powder for a less smokey flavor)
3 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons black pepper (coarse or fine - your preference)
1 - 1.5 teaspoons sea salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (I left this out in bambino's version)

Easy right?  You probably have most of these ingredients on hand.

Love cumin?  Add a little more.  Looking for less spice? Omit the red pepper.  This recipe is super versatile.


Combine spices into a bowl and give it a big stir until combined.

Store in an airtight container.  

Happy Cooking and Happy Styling!
