You’ll keep this homemade Whole30 and Keto friendly Taco Seasoning in your pantry 24/7/365! This taco seasoning recipe is made with squeaky clean ingredients so it’s Paleo, Gluten Free, Sugar Free, plus it’s totally delicious on veggies, ground beef, chicken, shrimp, or really any kind of meat!
I’m so excited to share this homemade Taco seasoning recipe with you! Now before you ask, you know I’m all for making life easy. I buy all the store bought convenience items like Whole30 mayo and Whole30 ketchup, because.. well, it’s much easier than making my own.
But taco seasoning is something that I can throw together in about 2 minutes flat with ingredients I already have in my pantry, and then enjoy it as I need it, whenever I want.
Lots of store bought taco seasonings contain additives and sugars, which isn’t great if you’re following Whole30 or Keto. So when you make your own, you get full control over the ingredients! And in this recipe, there’s no sugar, and no junk. And as an added bonus, making your own spice blends means saving money! Hello, budget!
Taco Seasoning Ingredients
The ingredients in this recipe are very simple
- Chili Powder
- Garlic Powder
- Onion Powder
Notice this taco seasoning recipe is sugar free and also free of sugar substitutes, which is why this recipe is both Keto and Whole30 friendly.
Please note: If you have a gluten allergy or sensitivity, be sure all your spices are labeled as gluten free before you make the taco seasoning.
Storing Taco Seasoning: Transfer the seasoning mix to an airtight container and store at room temperature. For best taste, use within one year, unless the expiration date of any of the included spices comes first.
Homemade taco seasoning is super versatile, because you can use it in basically anything. But you can also adjust it based on your preferences.
- Do you like your seasoning extra spicy? Add about 1/8-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper.
- Do you prefer it mild? Just cut the chili powder in half.
Recipes that use Taco Seasoning
Like I said, this seasoning blend is super multi-purpose, and it can be used on ground beef, chicken (any kind fo meat really), or veggies. Plus you can use it on SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST TACOS!
