Homemade Taco Seasoning In Bulk

Sharing is caring!

Confession time… I HATE going to the grocery store!

Honestly, it’s a huge plus in being a homesteader.  I love when I can grab something from the pantry, or the backyard just to make my dinner!

So, when I ran out of that awful store bought taco seasoning I figured it was about time to stock my pantry with my own!

Share the love!  Pin me for later!

I searched around for recipes but mostly found them to only be enough for one meal.  No thank you.  I have enough to do.  I need to store it in bulk!

After playing around a bit I came up with a recipe for Homemade Taco Seasoning in Bulk!  It fills about 3/4 of a pint mason jar and will last us quite awhile!

I replaced the top with a storage lid like these, instead of the standard canning lid.

When mixing this up I also found that I was almost out of onion powder and I really didn’t want to run to the store for that either, so I managed to figure out how to make that too!  You can see how to make your own onion powder here!

So, what’s in it?

Here are the ingredients to mix up your own Homemade Taco Seasoning in bulk!

  • 3/4 cup chili powder
  • 3 1/2 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 3 Tbsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp onion powder
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • Sea salt (optional)

Directions

  • Brown 1 pound of meat.
  • Sprinkle the browned meat with 2 to 3 tablespoons of taco seasoning.
  • Add 2/3 cup of water and mix in.
    • Add Sea salt to taste.
  • Reduce the heat to medium low and allow to cook down until thickened.

*** Add it to strips of cooked chicken, peppers and onions with 1/4 cup water instead and it makes great fajitas too!
