This super versatile Homemade Taco & Fajita Seasoning is a staple in my spice cupboard. I make double batches and use it in place of store bought taco seasoning packets in all my Mexican and southwestern inspired recipes. Tacos, casseroles, chili…you name it, this spicy blend adds a huge punch of flavor.
Not only is it simple to make and lower in sodium (and other junk I can’t pronounce), but it’s a money saver too. I like a little kick to my spice blend, but if you prefer a milder taste, just omit the chipotle chili powder. And if you’re looking for a sodium free option, feel free to leave out the salt completely. The flavor is so intense and smoky, you won’t miss it at all!
I also love homemade spice blends as a way to get kids involved in the kitchen – let them do the measuring and mixing!
- 2 Tablespoons chili powder
- 4 teaspoon cumin
- 2 teaspoon coriander
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chili powder optional
- 2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Combine all ingredients together and store in an air tight container.
