Scroll to the bottom of this post for the full list of taco seasoning ingredients and the amount of each required.
These are the ingredients I use. You can adjust the amounts if you prefer to have yours spicier or less spicy. The choice is yours. You will find this recipe keto friendly and so much better than those store bought taco seasoning packets available at the supermarket.
chilli powder – don’t be too concerned about the quantity in this recipe as it is not a seasoning recipe. A little goes a long way.
ground cumin – cumin goes so well in Mexican cuisine and flavouring taco meat.
paprika – sweet or smoked can be used.
salt flakes – I always use sea salt flakes. Do NOT use any salt flakes that have added iodine as it will make the seasoning bitter.
garlic powder – a little goes a long way. Garlic powder is a great addition to any seasoning.
onion powder – onion powder or onion salt can be used.
oregano – you can use regular or Mexican oregano
How to Make Low Carb Taco Seasoning

Step 2. Mix them together carefully until well combined!

How to Use DIY Taco Seasoning
This is such a great taco spice recipe on any kind of protein. Whether it is slow cooked, pressure cooked, barbecued, smoked, grilled or fried. I love it on a smoked pork butt, or with any kind of Mexican carnitas.
Use in any of our Mexican recipes. This seasoning works well with everything from ground beef to seasoning for chicken tacos or vegetables.
Our Keto Taco Salad or even Keto Burgers are a great way to use this taco seasoning recipe too. Mix a little in guacamole or mix with sour cream for an amazingly easy topper for a keto Mexican casserole or keto pies.
Yes. Store bought seasoning do have fillers and sugar. Be mindful that you read the ingredients if you wish to purchase from the supermarket.
As long as you’re not using stale dried herbs and spices, this seasoning should keep for up to 3 months in the pantry.
Use as an easy seasoning for any taco.
