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?

Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Braid

Source: via Brandi on Pinterest


2 cans Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls
2 cups chicken chunks, cooked
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 cups broccoli, frozen, steamed and chopped
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 egg yolk
fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, spread both cans of crescents length wise to form a long rectangle.
Press each of the seams to form a single layer of dough.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayonnaise
Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.
Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough.
Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.
Brush the top of the braid with a beaten egg yolk and sprinkle fresh rosemary on top.
Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown.

How perfect does this sound for an easy Friday night din…
