TACO seasoning

A super quick spice blend for all your Taco Tuesdays! Skip the store-bough ones and make your own!


  • Ground cayenne pepper or chilli powder – 1 tablespoon
  • Smoked paprika or Kashmiri chilli powder – 2 teaspoons
  • Red chilli flakes – ½ teaspoon 
  • Cumin powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Garlic powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Oregano seasoning – 1 teaspoon 
  • Salt to taste 
  • Ground black pepper – ¼ teaspoon 


  • Combine all the ingredients together to make a smooth powder. Use this for seasoning taco meat, loaded nachos or chicken fajitas. 
  •  NOTES : If you don’t have chilli flakes at home, try  roasting dried red chillies and pulse them a few times in a blender until they are flaky. Don’t powder them.
  • If garlic powder isn’t available at your store, try dry roasting two small cloves of garlic until golden brown on all sides and blend them with the other spices.
