Home Made Taco Seasoning Mix

We used to buy a lot of taco seasoning. I use it in a lot of dishes and it got to be quite expensive. I looked around for a recipe with no salt (who needs the added salt anyway?) and no cornstarch (something we're trying to avoid). This is what I came up with.

Taco Seasoning Mix
1 teaspoon minced onion
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Combine and use in place of a taco seasoning packet.

We used this just the other night in Tostadas - yum!


  1. I always make my own all the time now...it does have some salt in it.

  2. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I have been planning to make my own taco seasoning and I will try this one!

  3. This is the taco seasoning mix recipe I use. We LOVE it and haven't had to buy any taco seasoning in over a year! :)

  4. This looks fantastic! I bet it was yummy. =)
