Taco Seasoning

My go-to taco spice mix. Use instead of store-bought packets.
Servings 1 /2 cup
Author Mike


  • 1/4 cup dried onions minced
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt or less
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon dried garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon cumin ground
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flake or more
  • 2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano


  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. I prefer to then transfer it to a spice grinder and give it a little grind so the resulting mix is a little finer.
  • To use, add 2-3 tablespoons to every 1 pound of ground beef, along with 1/3-1/2 cups of water.
  • The mix will keep for up to a year in an airtight container in a pantry or closet.
