Terriffic Taco Seasoning

Two of my sweet boys have mulitiple food allergies and because of this most of our cooking is from scratch.  I read somewhere a recipe for a taco seasoning.  I have tweaked it for our family's taste and I make a HUGE batch because we have tacos or nachos once a week, it seems like. 

As an added note, I only use Trader Joe's spices and McCormick Spices that are additive free.  Most are gluten free.  Always double check before using.  I also prefer seasalt over table salt.  Flavor is better and you get wonderful minerals from the salts.  For a jar, I simply reused a glass dressing jar.

Add to a clean glass jar:

 4 TBSP onion powder
2 TBSP Chili powder
1 TBSP crushed red peppers
1/2 TBSP dried oregano
2 TBSP sea salt
1 TBSP tapioca starch
1 TBSP garlic powder
1 TBSP ground cumin

All the ingredients assembled.


All shaken up!!!!


  1. I have never thought of making a big batch. I always just season as we go. What a great idea! Your recipe is a bit different than mine and I'm anxious to try it!

  2. Thanks Jenny! I do love it. You should share yours. I am always up for a new recipe!

  3. Mine has a tomato base...not sure if canned tomatoes are on your list of foods you can eat or not. But, I usually add tomato sauce and diced fresh tomatoes, cumin, chili powder, and garlic.
