FOR THE FULL LIST OF INGREDIENTS AND COMPREHENSIVE INSTRUCTIONS, PLEASE SEE THE RECIPE CARD AT THE END OF THIS POST. BEFORE YOU SCROLL, THERE’S IMPORTANT INFORMATION IN THIS BLOG POST.

If you read the ingredients on a lot of packaged taco seasonings you will find things like Maltodextrin, vegetable oil, canola oil, Silicon Dioxide ( a preservative to keep the mix from caking), and a few other things you just don’t need. Especially when making your own is so easy!

Vegetable oil and canola oil aren’t healthy oils and they don’t really belong in your seasoning. You only need 7 ingredients you probably have in your pantry.

What Spices You Will Need

Can You Use it as a Dry Rub For Meat?

Absolutely! If you’re making carnitas, Instant Pot Pulled Pork, Instant Pot Barbacoa, or a host of other things, this seasoning and rub will work great. I love to keep this on hand for weeknight dinners. It really eliminates the guessing game on what to have for dinner.

How to Store the Seasoning

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.
