Taco night is always a favorite in my household. The toppings are pretty important when it comes to having a tasty taco, but a flavorful taco seasoning is key to the best taco experience possible. You guys are going to love this homemade taco seasoning. It’s-
Full of flavor
And simply the BEST!
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt + more as needed to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
In a small bowl or jar, mix all ingredients and store in airtight container. I like using a jar with a lid and giving it a shake to mix. This also makes it easy for storage.
For tacos or seasoning meat for another use, add 3 tablespoons seasoning mixture plus 1/2 cup water or chicken broth to one pound of cooked meat. Simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently until there is very little liquid left in the pan.
