Taco Seasoning

Yields1 ServingPrep Time3 mins

Homemade taco seasoning is one of the easiest homemade spice combinations to make, and it can add a big pop of flavor to otherwise boring tacos! Raid your spice drawer for essentials like chili powder, salt, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and more, and get ready to stir all your dry ingredients together. Homemade taco seasoning is easily customizable; just add a favorite spice or subtract one that you don't love so much. When you're done mixing all the spices together, simply brown some ground beef and mix in the seasoning. Delicious!
