Skip the packaged taco seasoning and mix up this Keto Taco Seasoning instead. In under 5 minutes you can make a batch of low carb taco seasoning that is the perfect blend of taco seasoning flavors you love without all the carbs!
Keto Taco Seasoning
One of the hardest things I have found when it comes to eating low carb is that I love tacos and just about every packaged taco seasoning has cornstarch, sugar, or cornmeal. All of those things are not ok on a low carb diet. Thankfully making my own homemade Keto Taco Seasoning is super easy and I can make a large batch to use anytime I need it.
How to Store Keto Taco Seasoning
The best way to store taco seasoning is in an air tight container, I personally like to use a mason jar for storing my keto taco seasoning.
How long does Low Carb Taco Seasoning Last?
Homemade Taco seasoning will keep in an airtight container for 6 months.
How to Customize Taco Seasoning
Homemade taco seasoning is easily customizable! You can play with the amounts of spices you like to find the perfect one for your family! This is the mix my family enjoys, if you want to make your taco seasoning recipe mild cut back on the amount of cayenne. If you would like spicier taco meat seasoning then add more cayenne powder or some red pepper flakes.
What is in Taco Seasoning?
Chili powder makes up the largest portion of this homemade taco seasoning. Chili powder is what gives your taco seasoning the taco seasoning flavor you love.

Garlic Powder and Onion Powder are the next two spices that make up a big portion of this tasty taco seasoning!
