Taco Seasoning Mix Recipes For Superb
Flavours and Mouthwatering Aromas

Assembling your own homemade taco seasoning mix recipes is the key to adding fabulous taste to your recipes. Quick and easy-to-make, do it yourself and in minutes you'll be adding authentic flavours to your Mexican tacos. Plus you can tailor the ingredients to whatever filling you choose to make.

Note: Whilst for maximum flavour when making your blends, I generally advise using whole spices, sometimes this is not practical.  In these cases it's fine to use ground powders if you reduce the quantities the recipe requires by half. So instead of 2 tablespoons of whole coriander you use 1 tablespoon pre-ground coriander. Reduce any others by half as well if you don't have whole.

Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix Recipes

What You'll Need: (makes about 12 tablespoons) 

3 tbsp chili powder 
2 tbsp coriander seeds (cilantro)
2 tbsp cumin seeds 
2 tbsp dried Mexican oregano
2 tbsp dried sage
1 tbsp dried mint
2 tsp black peppercorns
3-4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp grated nutmeg

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Grind the salt, peppercorns, cumin and coriander
  • Sieve into a bowl
  • Stir in the chili, cayenne, onion, garlic and nutmeg
  • Crumble in the Mexican oregano, sage and mint. Combine thoroughly

Store your homemade taco seasoning mix in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.

Note: Dry toasting the coriander, cumin and peppercorns before cooling and grinding will add even more flavours to your finished blend, and is recommended if you have the time. (It only takes a few extra minutes)
