Homemade Taco Seasoning

Make your Own Spices Series
is a weekly series here at Frugal
Farmhouse. To help you save
money I will be sharing my
homemade spice recipes each
Monday. Stay tuned!

Homemade Taco Seasoning
2-1/2 tsp. garlic powder
5 tsp. paprika
6 tsp. chili powder
3 tsp. onion powder
4-1/2 tsp. cumin
Cayenne pepper powder to taste

I use about 1 tbsp per 1 pound of hamburger. We don’t like spicy tacos however, so adjust according to your family’s taste buds.


  1. Thanks for sharing. I knew this had to be a simple recipe that could be made at home!

  2. and it tastes so much better! I love knowing what goes in to my food, such peace of mind! Make sure you check back next monday I'll have more more homemade spice recipes :)

  3. Hi Brandi,

    Just a quick note to thank you for recently stopping by my blog. I also want to thank you for your prayers, you don't know how much it means to me that others are joining us in prayer for our situation.

    Again, Thank you,

  4. Hey Mrs. B! Thank you for stopping by. I truly hope everything works out in your favor :) Hope to see you around!

  5. This is awesome! I can't tell you how many times I have gone to make something thinking I have had a taco seasoning packet on hand and realized that I didn't....I typically have all of these ingredients on hand, so now I can just make my own!

  6. Melissa- I know exactly what you mean. That is the exact reason I looked for this recipe. Then I tweaked it to fit my taste. It really is yummy and you actually know what is in it, no surprises!

  7. Yum I love Taco Seasoning! I can't wait to try this out. I love Chili powder and cumin and we all know how much I love Garlic and onion.

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

The winds of Change...

There came a time in our lives when our planning just didn’t make the cut. We recently moved in with family due to Chevy Man injuring his foot. I know a lot of you will understand that when you live paycheck to paycheck there just isn’t enough money to put aside for a rainy day. Now I am learning to pinch my pennies even harder than I did before. Chevy Man was in an accident on September 24th with a friend and injured his foot. The first doctors told us he broke his ankle and put him into a cast and on crutches for 8 weeks, with possible surgery. I was relieved that he wasn’t hurt more than he was, but what were we gonna do for 8 weeks!?!I called my Grandma and asked if it was alright if we stayed with her for a while. We were planning on moving to this area anyways at the end of the year so that just moved us faster and in a little less desirable situation than we would have liked. But I am so very thankful for my family. They are amazing.I packed all of our belongings into a 10x10 s…

[Guest Post] Summertime Blues

Today’s post is a part of the 20 something blogger blog swap. This post is written by Kelly over at Insert Clever Title here. Which by the way, why didn’t I think of that title?! It’s awesome, Kelly! She has a great blog and I am totally hooked. I have been reading it all day. She has a great writing style and outlook on life. I’m very excited to have her as my swap partner. This is the first every guest post here at Frugal Farmhouse, so I’m a little, ok a lot excited! Also when you check out her blog, you get to check out my post on saving money in the summer.

Something about summer has lost a bit of its magic for me. I don't know if it was the summer that I graduated from college, and was suddenly, jarringly thrown into the Real World, or if was something that had been sneaking up on me for years before that.Summer vacation doesn't exist for me anymore.It makes me both sad and, admittedly, a little bitter, to lose that sense of freedom. My reward for making it through all tho…
