This homemade taco spice blend is perfect for making tacos. burritos, and more! Make a big batch and store it in your pantry so that you always have it on hand.
Combine all spices in a jar and mix together.
If you are making ground beef, I would start out with about 2-3 Tablespoons of seasoning and a half cup of water per pound of beef. You could add a tablespoon or two of tomato paste as well.
Nutrition facts are for the amount of taco seasoning that you would use to season a pound of meat, not an individual serving.
Store taco seasoning in a glass jar with a lid. It should stay fresh in a cool, dry place, for at least 6 months.
If you'd like to make this blend hotter, you can add some cayenne pepper to the mix. Add a little at a time until it's up to your preferred level of heat.
