Homemade Taco seasoning you can make from scratch is so quick and easy to make and much better, and cheaper, than the pre-made packets you buy in the grocery store.
For starters there’s no added starch like you find in some packs of ready made seasoning, if you’re gluten free like I am or if you’re following a low carb or Keto diet then this is important!
There’s around 2g net carbs per serving with my Homemade Taco seasoning , so not a lot if you’re adding it to a skillet of ground beef, or with some chicken.

Tips for making homemade taco seasoning
- Use fresh spices, if your spices have been in your pantry for more than six months ditch them and buy new ones.
- Keep your homemade taco seasoning in an airtight container, this will help it to be more flavorful for longer.
- If you like some heat feel free to add in some cayenne pepper, I’m cooking for kids so I don’t usually add it.
- When cooking with it start with a tablespoon to about 1lb ground beef and go from there, if you think it needs more simply add it
- There’s minimal salt in this taco seasoning mixture because everyone’s tastes vary so you’ll need to taste and season more if you need to once the meat is cooked.
