Taco Seasoning Recipe


Tacos are one of the easiest and quickest meals to make and we always have the ingredients on hand. Tacos don’t have to be a processed unhealthy meal. By either making my own whole wheat tortillas or using plain brown rice as a base for a rice bowl, there is no need for overly processed flour tortillas. And by making my taco seasoning ahead of time, to avoid the preservative filled taco seasoning packet, tacos are a quick weeknight nutritious meal.


Top them with some lettuce, tomato, greek yogurt, and avocado and the meal is complete and incredibly healthy!

Taco Seasoning:

2 Tbs chili powder

4 tsp cumin

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (depending on spice level desired)

Mix all together.

This should season 2-3 lbs of meat, so the equivalent of 2-3 packets of taco seasoning. You can double the recipe and keep it stored in airtight container so you always have it on hand.

    • Yea I have actually made it with and without paprika and couldn’t taste a difference so I stopped bothering using it. Controlling the salt content is the reason I make my own too!
