This spicy taco seasoning is the perfect blend of spicy, smoky, salty, and heat from chili. We love it on our favorite vegan tacos and tofu taco bowls. Once you make a batch of this homemade taco seasoning, you'll never buy it at the store again. It's soooo easy!!
I'm a BIG taco fan. Like S E R I O U S addiction. My love for tacos started at an early age. My mom always made tacos for Halloween on October 31. It was an easy meal to throw together and everyone in the family loved them. With a flurry of after-school activities and getting costumes organized, it was an easy grab and go that mom knew for sure we would eat. Funnily enough, all the kids in our family carried this tradition on and still do to this day (different ingredients, same tradition)!
So ditch the taco packages forever because making your own spicy taco seasoning is so easy. Plus it's easy to customize and make salt free if you are watching your sodium. You probably have everything you need in your spice cupboard right now!!!
RECIPE IDEAS for gluten free, meat free, dairy free tacos:
Luckily, there are many amazing meat replacements that mimic the same texture as traditional tacos - one of our favourites is this Beefless Ground by Gardein (which is fabulous, super fast, and convenient).
Another favourite, try this delicious and easy cauliflower-walnut mixture recipe. PRO TIP: make this ahead of time and freeze until needed.
For our family's go-to tacos, I typically just roast cauliflower florets and chickpeas with this spicy taco seasoning and then pile them up with all the goodies (Sloppy Slaw Taco recipe here).
Whichever filling you choose, this is the perfect spicy mixture to season your tacos. So what are you waiting for, get to the kitchen and get mixing!!!
