“Ultimate” Taco Seasoning

If you are anything like me, you like to make your seasoning blends at home. There is just something about using the freshest spices, with no stabilizers, that makes seasoning blends the best. Today I am giving you what I consider to be the absolute ULTIMATE taco seasoning mixture ever! Two of the ingredients in this mix I have told you about before, tomato powder and Worcestershire powder. (You can read what I had to say about them here, and you can find the tomato powder here and the Worcestershire powder here.) I strongly encourage you to get both of these. If you make soups or stews, hamburgers or meatloaf, or any type of seasoning blend, these two powders are going to enhance it tremendously. There is a world of difference between seasoning blends that include these, and those that don’t. Make your seasoning blends extra special and include these two powders. My complete recipe is below. This is enough to season 2 pounds of ground beef for tacos. You can cut this in half, or, do what I do and, at least, double it. You are going to want to keep this on hand.
“Ultimate” Taco Seasoning

1 tablespoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
¼ teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon paprika
1½ teaspoons ground cumin
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
½ teaspoon
tomato powder
½ teaspoon Worcestershire powder

Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container. Two heaping tablespoons equals one commercial packet.

If you are looking for a recipe in which to use this fantastic seasoning, I recommend this DELICIOUS Taco Meatloaf.

OOoh nice, I love making my own seasoning blends and keeping them in a mason jar with a green parmesan cheese cap on top. I'm on an economy kick so I can't order those powders yet, but I will keep a lookout for them in the store - Maybe Central Market has them...thanks for the taco meatloaf recipe, too!

I've used the same taco seasoning recipe for years, but I am going to have to try yours. I'm betting it will be superior to my old one! :)

I love to make my own seasoning for tacos, meatloaf, chili, etc. Fresher and more flavorful with far less sodium!!! I don’t have any Worcestershire powder, but while here in New Orleans I will look for some. The story of making my own seasoning will be more interesting to my friends and family if I can rub it in that the Worcestershire powder came from NOLA!!! If I don’t find a spice shop here, I will hit up Planters in downtown Kansas City when we return home. I’ve never seen it in any of the “regular” stores around town.
