  • ¼ – ½ t. red pepper opt. for a “kick”, if desired

    I never knew how easy and affordable making your own taco seasoning is!!! It taste like McCormick taco seasoning. So happy I found this recipe on my whole 30 journey in college. It makes tacos dinners easy and affordable!

    • I’m so proud of you for rocking a Whole30 in college! Thrilled this gave you an easy affordable option!

  2. I used this for chicken tacos to tonight and all three of my kids loved it! Everyone requested that we put it in our regular rotation. It was also super easy to put together, Thanks!

    • I love a kid win, that’s fantastic! So thrilled you loved this easy one!

      Yes! Wanting to break the habit of picking up that little pouch at the grocery store, I had been looking for a good quick recipe for taco seasoning. We did add some paprika to ours to give it a little more of a kick. My husband didn’t know what to put together one week when he was planning meals and went to the packet. Ugh- can’t even stomach it now!!

      • “Better than the packet” – I think that’s my new logo for this recipe. So happy to hear it, thank you!

    Best taco seasoning ever!! I use this every other week even when I’m not doing Whole30.

    • Aw, thank you! We haven’t looked back to store bought stuff since and love it!
