homemade taco seasoning recipe – in a jar with a spoon

Use taco seasoning often?

It’s actually really easy to DIY! Making your own homemade taco seasoning recipe is an easy way to save money and is a much healthier option when compared to the pre-packaged versions that you buy at the store. We have taco night often, so this is definitely worth making in my home!

Saves money & is healthier!

Most of the nine spices in this recipe can be found at the dollar store, and you can add or subtract amounts to cater to your family’s taste preferences! This recipe also makes a pretty large batch of taco seasoning – enough to season 5-6 pounds of meat – so you’ll never want or need to buy those little packets at the store again!

    I always make ours! Although i don’t premake it. I just shake what i need when i need it. I have a daughter with a wheat allergy so it’s also a must.

  2. Julie

    How much do you use for a pound of meat?

    • Julia L.

      1/5 to 1/6 of the recipe. It says at the beginning that it seasons 5-6 pounds of meat. HTH. 🌮

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      So usually about 2 Tablespoons per one pound of meat – or to taste 🙂

      • Julie

        Thanks Lina!

  3. bitty

    I have this recipe taped to the jar and usually triple it when I make it. It’s a keeper! Thanks Lina!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh good! Sure Bitty! 🙂

  4. nickyB

    I add dried cilantro to mine.

    • sara

      I love that. Going to try this next time.

  5. Mommy of 2

    I love this recipe! My family has not went back to packaged taco seasoning since!

  6. Rachel

    We do this! It works very well. I keep it in a canning jar. We tried to do a ranch dry mix also but that didn’t work out as well.

  7. Katie

    Best part is no MSG or yucky chemicals 😝

  8. Kelly

    I used to buy taco seasoning from a small company that isn’t around anymore. In my attempt to mimic their recipe, I like to add in a dash of chipotle powder, a pinch of orange zest, and a small box of raisins. It is the most surprising addition and it tastes wonderful.
    I only add those to my base mix when making tacos, not for taco soup or anything else that uses the taco mix.

  9. Katie

    We use this seasoning for ground turkey and then make nachos. It also works well with fajitas.

  10. autumnmeleah

    I use this minus the paprika.

  11. Emulvey2001

    I’ve used the same recipe for years & it’s awesome! Cheaper & no weird preservatives, additives or fillers. 🙂

  12. Cat

    Where can I get the container it is in I love that.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Target dollar spot 🙂

  13. Teresa

    I think this is the same recipe I use. I started making my own when my son was diagnosed with a wheat allergy. I put mine in an empty spice container. I just triple the recipe when I make it. It is so easy and cheap I won’t go back.

  14. AnnaMarie Sanderson

    You can find many of these spices on this list at Ollie’s in large containers at really low prices. I could make a triple batch and not have to make it again for a while.

  15. Luann

    Does anyone have a similar recipe for chili seasoning? Thanks!

  16. Tara

    Do you add water to this, or just straight into the meat?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes I would add 1/2 cup of water or as desired.
