Homemade Delicious Taco Seasoning Mix Recipe

You are about to learn how to make taco seasoning mix. The quantity of the seasoning mix is meant for 1 pound of ground turkey or 1 pound of hamburger. It is necessary to point out that the writer made several failed attempts before getting it right. So, you may not also get it right at first attempt. That should not stop you from trying again.

However, if you follow the instructions to the letter you will certainly get it right from the beginning. The ingredients needed are 2 tablespoons of chili powder, 1 teaspoon of cumin, 1 teaspoon of coriander, 1 teaspoon garlic salt, ½ teaspoon dried oregano and ¼ of Cayenne pepper.


1 teaspoon Cumin

¼ teaspoon Cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon Garlic Salt

1 teaspoon Coriander

½ teaspoon Dried Oregano

2 tablespoons Chili Powder


After gathering all the ingredients, you need to mix them together and store in a mason canning jar. You must be sure that the jar is airtight. You can add everything in 1 pound of cooked hamburger or ground turkey and add half cup of water. Boil it at low temperature until most the water evaporates. That is all. It is as simple as that.

However, after trying it out and you and your family like it, you can decide to make a giant batch and store. You won’t need to be making the mix each time you want to eat either ground turkey or hamburger.

You just have to read the instructions carefully and don’t forget to share it. The recipe provided makes roughly the equivalent of a single store-bought packet of taco seasoning.

Making your own taco seasoning is so much better than store-bought minus all the chemical preservatives.
