My friend Karen was kind enough to give me her Homemade Taco Seasoning recipe and it’s very easy to make.   Check out our Homemade Taco Seasoning recipe below!

Homemade Taco Seasoning:

In my home we eat tacos often. We love the traditional Mexican meals, and add Tex-Mex favorites, but I also put my own spin on a lot of recipes.

Whether it be Easy Taco Casserole, Dutch Oven Taco Soup or Chicken Enchiladas with Poblano Sauce we always have something cooking that we can use some extra taco seasoning in. 

Making My Own Seasonings:

One of my favorite reasons for making my own Homemade Taco Seasoning is that I have switched over to all organic non-GMO spices. With using my own mixes, I don’t have to worry about what is in those store bought mixes that I used to buy.

Plus with a pouch, I only have what’s in the pouch! If I need more, I’m out of luck. With Karen’s recipe she kindly shared with me, I made own Homemade Taco Seasoning and put it in a Ball Mason Jar  to keep it fresh. I was thinking– this would also make for a great gift idea for a housewarming gift, or a new mom.

Making your own seasonings in bulk also allows me to see how much I have left and I can use as little or as much as I need. Now and then I find out my son or daughters are coming over last minute and I need to stretch the recipe that I am making for dinner.

Discalimer: I was given some Ball Mason jars but was not asked to blog about them. I chose to do this on my own!

  1. I need a recipe for enchilada sauce. All canned versions I’ve seen have very unhealthy ingredients.

  2. Being a Tex Mex lover, I think this would save me a ton of money…and make great gifts. It would be easy enough to control the salt, too. And the heat!
