Throw Together Homemade Taco Seasoning

My first post.

Man it’s been a long time coming.  I definitely have learned a lot about myself in the past couple years.

Random things I’ve learned:

  1. I am nowhere near fashionable and the older I get the less cool I am and the more sarcastic I get.
  2. I am quite the domesticated animal; I like to say I’m a tiger. Cause I’m fierce and lazy as all hell (possible? I think so).  lazy tiger
  3. I am horrible at laundry…partially because I HATE IT and it is my ultimate nemesis and I’m always shrinking my clothes and my boyfriend’s clothes. 😦
  4. I love to eat. And I love fat. And MSG. And all the things bad for you. Judge me. (O.o)
  5. I love to workout. I kinda have to love working out or I stop becoming a tiger and become a panda…which I guess I can’t be mad about since pandas are so friggin’ cute.

Where am I going with this?  

I know some of you are aware that I attempted to start a ‘teach myself how to be fashionable blog’…THAT was an ULTIMATE fail.  Why? Because after I started that and explored more into fashion, I realized I HATE fashion and I am SO BAD AT it.  So trying to teach myself and write about it makes no sense what so ever.

So I then decided OK…I want to start a blog. What could/should I write about?!

I am not giving myself limitations. I am going to write about whatever my little heart desires.  I love food. I love working out. I love eating. I love being lazy. I love things that make my life easier. I love my loud mouth opinions. I love learning new things.  And I’m ready to share those things with you.

SO! First things first…Totally random but ultimately necessary for those lazy days after work where you don’t want to do anything but be fat and eat tacos.

Here are the items you will need (minus cayenne cause i forgot…) MY BAD:


Put it all together in a bowl


OoOh so pretty….

Then SHAKE THAT BOOTY and mix it all up! And WALAH! You have TACO MAGIC.

Here it is an action shot of me throwing it into some ground beef. Yummes.


Then when you’re hungry, just make yourself a yummo taco 🙂


2 Tablespoons of this MAGIC POWDER equates 1 ounce of deliciousness.  1 ounce is usually what is given in a Taco Seasoning packet and is good for one lb of ground beef, turkey, chicken, or whatever your heart desires.


Everyone needs taco seasoning in their life.  And guess what, you don’t have to use the store bought stuffs anymore…why?! Because you probably have all you need in your spice closet right now.  I dare you to look…go ahead.  And guess what…as much as I am up for preservatives and msg and all the bad-good stuff that I love…at least with this, you know what you’re putting into your food for those more health conscience peeps out there…

Difficulty Level: Easy

Servings: 2 packets worth (2 oz or 4 tablespoons)

Prep Time: 5 minutes


3 Tablespoon Chili Powder

1 Teaspoon of Garlic Powder

1 Teaspoon of Onion Powder

1 ½ Teaspoon of Red Pepper Flakes

½  Heaping Teaspoon of Oregano

1 Teaspoon of Paprika

3 Teaspoon of Cumin

2 Teaspoon of Garlic Salt (Sea or Kosher ok as substitute)

2 Teaspoon of Black Pepper

½  Teaspoon of Nutmeg (Optional)

1 Teaspoon of Cayenne (Optional for more spice, not pictured cause I’m a dumb dumb)

**For those who have little children and can’t eat spice, take out the chili powder, pepper flakes, paprika, and cayenne.  It won’t be the same but I promise it’s still delicious!

Last tidbid: This recipe is so easy! Just throw everything together and wahlah!  Life is delicious and YOU. WILL. NEVER. HAVE. TO. BUY. A. TACO. PACKET. AGAIN.  My best recommendation is to make this in bulk and keep it because you never know when you’ll need it.

  1. Yum! I do the same thing except I am SO lazy, I end up just using lots of cumin, red chili flakes, a dash of oregano, and chili powder. Love reading your blog! Keep writing!!! Xoxo
