Homemade taco seasoning is the spicy key, to the best Mexican food ever, whether it be Paleo cooking or not.

Whether you’re making tacos, fajitas, enchiladas or nachos, if you don’t have a tip top Mexican Taco seasoning, then the meal can be ruined.

You could buy the best grass-fed meat from the purest grazing land of New Zealand, you could buy veggies more organic than Icelandic glacial water, you could buy coconut flour Paleo Tortilla wraps made by cave-men imported from 5000BC, but if you don’t have the right blend of Mexican spices in your taco seasoning, your meal will be, in technical terms, crappy!

So, let’s make sure you never have to cook or eat a crappy Mexican meal ever again by giving you a super simple Taco Seasoning you can make in minutes at home.

Oh, and while we’re at it, let’s give you two quick recipes you can use it in: Fajitas and Pulled Pork (recipes at bottom of this post or click the button below to download them instantly)

But first, some of you might be asking, “Why on earth would I make my own taco seasoning when I can buy one from the supermarket?”

That’s a great question so let me explain with an excerpt from the Rumbles Spice Blend Cooking Module which if part of our Online Healthy Cooking School! You can click the image below to check out the Spice Blend module or head to the Rumbles Lifestyle Hub Website to check out the whole Online School.

THE IMPORTANCE OF MAKING YOUR OWN TACO SEASONING & OTHER SPICE BLENDS

  1. Many spice blends are full of preservatives, wheat, sugar, anti-caking agents and MSG. Next time you’re at the supermarket, read the back label of a taco seasoning or a fried chicken seasoning. You’ll be surprised at some of the fake ingredients many of these products contain. Also, be aware that many manufacturing companies make up brand new names to hide what an ingredient actually is. For example, MSG is often called yeast extract and sugar might be called maltodextrin or malt syrup. So, you can’t always trust what the actual ingredients label says anyway.
  2. You’ll never learn how easy and simple it is to make your own spice blends! Once you know how to blend herbs and spices, you’ll discover that it’s actually quicker to mix your own at home than it is to stop at the shop, get out of the car, put your spices in the trolley, purchase them at the checkout, etc. All it takes, most of the time, to blend your own herbs/spices, is to spoon a few ingredients together and stir them around! Plus, you can also make them in bulk, and then pretty soon you’ll have a cupboard full of your own personally crafted herb/spice mixes!
