Simple Taco Seasoning

My family LOVES tacos.  Plain, simple tacos.  And with six kids, many nights I just need something easy.  So we literally have tacos once a week.  Today’s recipe is the taco seasoning I use instead of buying it at the store.  It’s so easy to make with ingredients you have on hand.

1 1/2 TBSP Chili Powder

1 TBSP Cumin

1 TBSP Paprika

1 TBSP Garlic Powder

1 TBSP Onion Powder

1 TBSP Oregano

1 TBSP Salt

1/2 TBSP Pepper

1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper

Simply pour all into a glass container and mix well.  Then I use 1 TBSP per 1 pound of ground beef.


This is also great with shredded chicken.  I sauté my shredded chicken with

1-2 TBSP olive oil( estimate only – I just pour in what I think I need)

1 TBSP apple cider vinegar

2-3 TBSP of this taco seasoning(for about 3 C cooked shredded chicken)

the juice of 1 lime

a handful of chopped cilantro.


Put into a tortilla with rice, tomatoes, avocado, salsa, black beans, cheese, or add it to your salad.  Super tasty!

I hope you have a wonderful day!  And remember…

Life is Good.  Share the Good.
