Skip the packet of taco seasoning and make your own! Homemade Beef Taco Seasoning is easy to make, free of fillers, and super flavorful.
It’s such a bummer when we get a craving for tacos, but there’s no taco seasoning in the pantry. It wasn’t until I realized that I can make my own Homemade Beef Taco Seasoning that taco night wasn’t canceled every time the craving hit!
Not only is this homemade beef taco seasoning mix super easy to make, but it tastes just like the packet mixes.
To start, simply combine all of the spices in a small bowl and stir together with a fork.
In a large skillet, cook the ground beef until browned, breaking it apart as it cooks. Then add the seasoning mix, stirring well to combine, along with 1/4 cup of water. Cook until the water has cooked off.
Serve in tortillas, as taco rice bowl, or on a taco salad!
The possibilities are endless for beef taco meat! Of course, they can be used for traditional hard or soft tacos. Other ideas include using it for a taco salad, a taco rice bowl, on top of nachos, or the filling for beef enchiladas!
