Homemade Chili and Taco Seasoning

Chili and taco seasoningI’m kind of stoked to give this Homemade Chili and Taco Seasoning blend it’s own post. One might say I’ve been dying to taco bout it… (ugh, sorry).

For one, I really want to expand my “marinades, rubs + sauces” archives; and second, it’s perfect for any sort of chili or taco dish. It’s my go-to for tacos, fajitas, taco dips, and of course this Easy Slowcooker Vegetarian Chili which, might I add, is a damn good chili. (My Mom said so.)

So chuck the pre-packaged blends and start making your own! Because… because, why not?

Homemade Chili and Taco Seasoning


  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1.5 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1.5 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1.5 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 3 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoon cracked black pepper


  • Blend all of the seasonings into a small bowl.
  • Seal if any is leftover and leave in a dry space, like the pantry.

    Girl, you just saved my dinner tonight! I was planning on making tacos but ran out of seasoning. Luckily I have all these spices on hand so no mad dash to the far-away grocery store today. ;)
