I love to make my own rubs and spices at home because sometimes the seasoning packets have unnecessary ingredients. Sometimes you can find a nice rub without the fluff, but for me it’s just easier to DIY my own.

Pair this with any of your favorite barbecue sauces. Here in Kansas City, we love our sauce including Gates BBQ and KC Masterpiece.

What Spices You Will Need

Can You Use it as a Dry Rub For Meat?

Absolutely! This works great for chicken wings, chicken thighs, Instant Pot Pulled Pork, Air Fryer Ribs, and more.

How to Store the Seasoning and Rub

If you are making a large batch of the Taco Seasoning, store it in an airtight container. I love to use these glass jars for storage. Ground spices usually last for 6 months. After that they will start to lose their flavor. I check this by giving the jar a whiff. If the smell is still potent it’s probably still good.

Whole spices will last up to 5 years.
