Did you know that some Taco and Fajita seasonings contain wheat?  Not only wheat but silica.  What is silica???   SAND!  Seriously!  SAND!  I don’t know about you, but I like my tacos sand-less.

I decided then and there to make my own taco seasoning from now on.  I mean it is easy enough, I can make it ahead in bulk, and I can tweak it to my families tastes.  It is affordable, and there really isn’t a reason not to.  Hope you enjoy making your own taco seasoning too!


  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tsp corn starch


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Use as you typically would a packet of taco seasoning.
  3. About 3 Tbsp per 1lb ground beef +- depending on your taste.
  4. Multiply the amounts to make this in bulk for future meals.
