Make this large batch homemade taco seasoning to keep in your pantry. Easy to make and much better for you than store-bought.

Homemade Taco Seasoning (Large Batch)

I already have a recipe for homemade taco seasoning on my blog, it’s actually my most popular recipe. I usually quadruple the batch when I make it so that I have a jar ready to go at all times. I use it not only for tacos, but also for enchiladas and all sorts of other things. It’s very versatile and a great thing to have on hand. Lower in sodium than the store-bought variety, and all ingredients that you probably have on hand–and bonus–that you can pronounce. Go figure.

Another great thing about this large batch taco seasoning is that it is great for gifting. Perfect for you friends and family that love to cook. Slap a cute label on a cute jar and you’re good to go. I gave a bunch of this away and everyone loved it. Or at least that is what they told me.

Instead of making you do the math to double or triple the recipe, I did it for you (per reader request!). You’re welcome. I hate math too, so I understand your hesitancy. I made TEN TIMES the amount in the original recipe. This makes over two cups of taco seasoning. That’s a whole lotta taco Tuesdays, my friends. Approximately 11 taco Tuesdays. Yup, I did more math for you. That’s how much I love you. You can stretch it even further if you don’t like your tacos too spicy. This mix does have a bit of a kick to it so you’ll have to play around a little to decide how much you want to add to your taco meat.

My daughter loved helping me measure out all the spices for this recipe. “Me do! Me do! Me do!” She’s obsessed. Drives me completely nuts but I love every minute of the insanity.
