We absolutely love tacos. Hard shell, soft shell, stand up shell, not a stand up shell – it really doesn’t matter. A definite favorite is our quick and easy taco recipe that we have on regular repeat at my house! But one thing that I just don’t like to buy are those little packets of taco seasoning. I know, they are easy to use and fast, but I much prefer to make my own homemade taco seasoning so that I know exactly what is in it – and what is not! 🙂

Homemade Taco Seasoning Recipe

I’ve realized over the years that I am sensitive to some of the preservatives used in store-bought mixes and since I’ve been making my own, I feel so much better! And, I feel better about using my homemade version of mixes in recipes that I serve to family and friends. There is no guessing if the person is sensitive to MSG, or so many of the other chemical-based preservatives and other additives.

Even if you don’t have those concerns, I still think you’ll love this simple, easy, 5-ingredient taco seasoning powerhouse!

  1. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I wasn’t able to buy taco seasoning when I lived in South Korea for five years. This was my go-to recipe for taco seasoning. Even though I now live in a country where I can buy it, I still prefer this recipe to store bought. Thank you!

    1. Arlene, I got the large jars and the smaller ones with the label you can place on top of the jars at Amazon. There is a link in the post “nice spice jar” for the large one. I love these jars.

  2. Love this recipe. Simple n can be easily made with pantry items. I marinated shrimp n it was the best shrimp tacos I ever had. So flavorful.
