Make-Ahead Large Batch Homemade Taco Seasoning

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

I have found a lot of taco seasonings that use most of these ingredients, but by experimentation I like this recipe myself. However, try it first making a very small batch first. You may or may not agree with the proportions or ratio of spices in this. I like it this way, but you need to try a small bit first to see if you do before possibly ruining a whole dish if you don't.

Wonderful - commercial seasonings are loaded with salt and this has none. Thanks for posting.

Thank you! This is great. I didn't have Mexican oregano so used just plain oregano and I did add dried minced onions just cause I like that in my taco seasoning. This is so easy and so much cheaper than the packages. Hurray.

Very economical! I bought the bags of seasonings at 99 cents each...I got 2 of these batches from about $5.00 worth of spices...what a deal!!!
