Homemade Taco Seasoning
Have you ever thought to make your own Taco Seasoning?! I admit I hadn’t until recently when I realized I needed it for a recipe, was all out and didn’t have time to run to the store. I found a recipe for it and thought we would give it a go. It was easier than we thought and tasted just like the taco seasoning you can buy.
I will say upfront – yes, it is easier to buy taco seasoning at the store, but I love having a good recipe on hand that I can make at anytime without having to run to the store. I also always have the ingredients on hand which is a bonus. It also takes just a few minutes to put together so technically, it’s faster to just make it at home than run to the store. 😉

How to Make Taco Seasoning
Any chili powder will do for this recipe, but we especially love Gebhardt chili powder. 😉
Once you have all the ingredients gathered and have your red pepper flakes crushed, you just need to combine all the spices. Mix well and store in an air-tight container. So easy, and delicious!
We even think these would be great to put in jars and gift to friends since everyone tends to use taco seasoning. 😉
