Taco Seasoning Recipe—Gluten-free, Corn-free, Dairy-free, MSG-free

Updated April 6, 2018.

You will love this homemade taco seasoning recipe!

It is quick and easy to make, and so convenient to use!

Think of authentic Mexican cuisine bursting with zesty tongue teasing tastes.

It is warm, not blistering hot with just the right spice, but without the burn.

Creating the perfect taco seasoning recipe takes skill.

It requires really knowing each ingredient, its source and what that does to flavor, and how to mix those ingredients to produce a whole south-of-the-border flavor experience. 

For example, basic grocery store label ground cayenne, American capsicum annuum, which tastes much milder than the potent, mouth-burning African capsicum fastigiatum.

Even salt is subject to flavor nuances based on its source.

Dead Sea salts taste different than Himalayan salts; they even differ in color!

Like a painter’s pallet loaded with brilliant pigment based paints, your seasoning pallet should include high quality organic ingredients from prime sources instead of tasteless grocery store label basics.


Protect the integrity of your spice mixes by storing them properly.

Use air tight spice containers shelved in a dark place at room temperature.

Make a bulk batch of this homemade taco seasoning recipe to have on hand when you need it.

Use it to make your favorite dishes reminiscent of old Mexico.

Go contemporary and create an original TexMex dish to surprise your family.

Do you love to barbeque?

Taco seasoning makes a great dry rub for your favorite cut of meat.

Whatever you cook, add a touch of homemade taco seasoning to your food and enjoy a flavor fiesta!
