Our Favourite Taco Seasoning

Even though tacos are totally a staple here, they still seem like party food.

A few years ago, I started mixing my own taco seasoning.

I add it to lots of things like guacamole and Mexican-esque casseroles.

I've tried several different ones and this seems to be the favourite.

This recipe fills my small sized mason jar and lasts me several months.

Taco Seasoning
*I add around 2 Tbsp to about a pound of ground meat.

3 Tbsp chili powder
3/4 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp onion powder
3/4 tsp chili flakes
3/4 tsp dried oregano 
1 1/2 tsp paprika (I use smoked paprika)
1 heaping Tbsp cumin
1 Tbsp Kosher salt
1 Tbsp black pepper
1/2 Tbsp sugar (optional- We don't like it with sugar but feel free to add it if you do.)

Mix together all ingredients in a mason jar and shake until combined.

  1. I just made burritos last night and used a recipe similar to this one! My recipe just doesn't have the paprika in it. I always make enough for 1 pound of meat though. Now I am going to make a big batch and keep it!
