Homemade Taco Seasoning Dairy Free

Is it Taco Tuesday but you’re all out of taco seasoning? 

Or would you like to make your own seasoning mix, void of all the extra mystery ingredients? 

In our food allergy family, making our own season mixes has been a God-send. 

Here’s our easy recipe for homemade taco seasoning!

Why use store-bought taco seasoning with potential allergens and extra ingredients? 

We love making our own taco seasoning with no additives or MSG.

So easy and so tasty!

And such satisfaction in knowing exactly what you’re feeding your family.

Hope you can whip up this taco seasoning just in time for your next Taco Tuesday!

This recipe is not just for one batch of taco meat. Store it in a glass jar and use it “to taste” as you cook up your taco meat.

I typically guadge how much to use by sprinkling enough over all the meat as it cooks.

Then when the meat is cooked through, I’ll give it a taste test and see if more is needed. 

See seasoning recipe below.

Store in a glass jar.

Use to season meat for tacos or fajitas, to taste.

Thank you for this! I gave my son taco seasoning (the McCormick brand) and could not figure out why he had a rash on his face. Of course there's milk in it! Ugh. A milk allergy is so new to our family so I'm still learning. And I'm so thankful to have stumbled upon your blog!
