I bet you’ve got just about all of these ingredients in your pantry right now. With just 5 spices, you’ll have a jar of amazing homemade taco seasoning ready for your beef, chicken or seafood recipes! It’s actually even really good sprinkled in your scrambled eggs, chicken, beef, pasta and in mac and cheese sauce. Lots of ways to use it! Be sure to check out my Grilled Taco and Lime Chicken that uses this seasoning too!
Here are your 5 ingredients you’ll need to get your taco seasoning ready to go. I don’t know about you, but I go through a LOT of ground cumin, so I always have the big bottle at hand from Costco. I make lots of Mexican dishes 🙂
Let’s start with the cumin. Right in the bowl!
Kosher salt up next.
Garlic Salt and freshly ground black pepper in the bowl.
Last but not least, smoked paprika. Loooove this stuff. Make sure you get “smoked.” Makes a big difference.
Look at these pretty spices!!
Mix ‘er up 🙂
Place your new taco seasoning in an airtight container and use as you’d like! Use about 3 tablespoons of seasoning per 1 pound of meat.
