Usually, taco seasoning is high in sugar, maltodextrin, and other unhealthy ingredients.

Keto homemade taco seasoning is much needed if you want a healthy and sugar-free spice to add to some of your favorite Mexican meals.

I usually read the ingredient list of all the products I am buying. When I first started the ketogenic diet, it never occurred to me to look at the ingredients of prepackaged seasonings.

Homemade Keto Taco Seasoning

I was shocked to see that a classing taco seasoning is full of unhealthy ingredients like sugar, maltodextrin, potato starch, canola oil.

Here are some of the ingredients that you can find in most of the taco seasonings:

As you see only one serving (2 tsp) comes up to 3g carbs. The entire packet contains 6 servings, so there are 18 grams of carbs. That’s way too high and we can make a homemade alternative and avoid all the hidden carbs.

Once you try this simple taco seasoning recipe, you’ll never return to the store packets.

I love to use it on chicken, beef, soups, and in many other delicious recipes that need to be a little spiced up.

If you want to avoid all the unnecessary additives in store-bought taco seasoning, you should start to gather the main ingredients and mix them up in a tasty combo of flavors, perfect for many dishes.

You can easily customize this, recipe depending on your taste. For me, this is the perfect ratio of spices.

If you want to cook for the kids, you can create a mild taco seasoning by simply reducing the amount of chili powder and skip the crushed red pepper flakes.

For me, it’s more convenient to make a larger batch and store it in a little jar for further use.

This recipe is naturally gluten-free because it only uses condiments but you have to double-check the packets to make sure it doesn’t have traces of gluten.

  • Chili Powder covers up the most significant part of this taco seasoning recipe mix and adds a lot of spicy flavors.
  • Cumin is one of my favorite condiments and it adds a nutty strong warm flavor. Cumin is very popular in Mexican cuisine and is the main ingredient in curry powder.
  • Garlic and onion powder are my favorites and give most of the flavor to the spices mix.
