  1. I had never thought about making my own taco seasoning before.

    I like the idea of making my own seasoning and not using those premixed packets on the spice aisle at the grocery store.

    Thanks

  2. I think that this is very good taco seasoning that is made at home and is much healthier! I would love to make this and use it next time in my tacos. Thanks for posting a really great recipe.

  4. I love this!!!! I typically just use chili powder, but wow, I now see clearly all the 'good stuff' that I'm missing. I must run to do this today! I love making my own tacos, including the tortilla shell - they deserve the best taco seasoning! Yippee!

  5. I usually make my own by just throwing things together so I am very excited to have an actual recipe :D Thank you so much for sharing! I may cut the red pepper flakes and add cayenne since I like mine spicy and I am not a huge fan of the flakes!

  12. interesting,but by the time you buy all the seasonings ,it would be cheaper to buy a pack

  13. I love this recipe! I hate buying things in the store that have all kinds of other artificial ingredients and this is just all the spices you need. My family loves tacos and my son has Celiac's disease and can not have gluten. That's what's great with this recipe no gluten and since you make it yourself you know what goes into it so it's safe for him to eat.

  27. Many of the taco seasoning packets that grocery stores sell have other stuff in there that you don't need. This way you know exactly what's in it. Thanks.

  37. Every "make your own" taco seasoning recipe I've tried just didn't have the same "oomph" as store bought. However, I see some things in yours that I've never tried before that might make a difference. I'm going to give it a try.

    ReplyDelete
  38. This is a keeper because sometimes I'm in the mood to make tacos but I don't have any ready made taco mix packets

  39. OMGEESH Thank you, I get a hankering for tacos a lot and not many others will eat them around here lol. Now when Im stuck wanting some and don't have a taco seasoning pack I can make them anyways lol.

    ReplyDelete
  40. wow i have all of the ingredients in my pantry anyway! thanks! this saves me a dollar or two a month!

    ReplyDelete
  41. This is such a good idea to make your own mixes! You would definitely know what your mixes had in them and you could probably be able to clear out some of your spices to refresh some of them. I am going to try this. Thanks for the recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  42. This is great. We are taco fans in my house. I will be trying this recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I've always used store bought seasoning, but maybe I should try this next time.

    ReplyDelete
  44. i have had to make my own taco seasoning mix before since we didn't have the packet . this one is much better though. my husband LOVES tacos or any other type of mexican dish. he is half mexican! i should make him some soon. we haven't had any for a while.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love tacos and taco seasoning, but so many of the commercial spice mixes have MSG in them, which I'don't like the taste of, and other family members are allergic to. Thanks so much for posting the ingredients! It will be great to be able to tweak it exactly the way I like it.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm going to try this friday night. I don't have any taco seasoning packs, so I am going to make this. Wonder if the kids will be able to tell the difference.

    ReplyDelete
  47. This is a nicely balanced seasoning mix. Thanks. Now I'm hungry...

  48. I love this idea! The packaged seasoning is very strong, or not strong enough, and you never really know what's in it. This sounds yummy and definitely easy to whip up! I'll be making this!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love this recipe. Thanks for sharing. I prefer to make my own mixes to avoid extra additives and preservatives in the packaged seasonings.

    ReplyDelete

  77. Making your own seasoning makes so much sense! Those little packets are expensive and I'm sure have preservatives in them too.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I want to try this! so many packaged taco seasonings have that 'taste'--you know, kind of bland & icky.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I think this is such a good idea! Instead of buying a pre-made mix you can make your own. This would also help to clear out your pantry spices too. I will definatly give this one a try
