Taco Mix - An Easy-to-Make, All-Purpose
Blend For All Your Favourite Fillings

For the best flavours you're going to need a quality taco mix when making homemade tacos! Of course, you could always buy a commercial brand but as this one is super simple to do, I recommend you give it a go. There's also a short slideshow below demonstrating exactly how I made it.

Note: If you don't have whole cumin to hand, just use pre-ground and reduce the quantity the recipe requires by half. So instead of 2 tablespoons of whole seeds you would use 1 tablespoon of pre-ground cumin.

Homemade Taco Mix Recipe

What You'll Need: (makes about 7 tablespoons)

2 tbsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp dried marjoram
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp paprika powder
4 tsp dried chervil
4 tsp chili powder
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp sea salt

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Finely grind the cumin and salt
  • Add to a bowl
  • Stir in the chili, garlic, onion and paprika powders
  • Crumble in the marjoram and chervil. Combine every thoroughly

Store your taco seasoning recipe in an airtight jar in a cool place out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.

Note: If you have the time, dry toasting the cumin seeds before grinding and combining with the other ingredients may be something to think about. The heat from the toasting process releases the most fabulous flavours and aromas from the spices.
