  • Summary

    This homemade spice blend tastes much better than anything you can buy at the store. Most ingredients are likely already sitting in your spice cabinet. The secret ingredient is mushroom powder. You can make you own, or buy it — here’s one online. The taco seasoning will still taste great without it, but if you can include it we highly recommend it. Also, the amount of cayenne pepper is up to you. We call for 1/2 teaspoon, which makes the spice blend a mild to medium heat level.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons chili powder, we recommend our homemade blend
    • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
    • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
    • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
    • 2 teaspoons mushroom powder, optional
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons hot smoked paprika
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
    • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or more based on how spicy you want the mix
