Homemade Taco Seasoning (Low FODMAP, Paleo, Whole30)

  • Author: Gail
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 7 tbsp 1x


Simplify taco and fajita making with this 5-minute homemade taco seasoning! This recipe is low FODMAP as well as naturally Paleo and Whole30 (although check labels of individual spices for sulfites and other additives).


  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano leaves
  • 1 tbsp dried chives
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 2 ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper


  1. Add all the ingredients to a small bowl or air-tight container (such as a glass jar) and whisk or cover and shake until well combined.
  2. Add to your favourite Mexican dishes like tacos and fajitas as well as my upcoming Grilled Chicken Fajita Salad.


  • For ground beef tacos, I typically add 2 1/2 tbsp of taco seasoning, 1 tbsp garlic-infused olive oil, and 1/3 cup water to 1 lb of cooked ground beef and saute on low heat on the stove top until the juices are mostly gone from the skillet, about 5 minutes.
  • For steak or chicken fajitas, I create a marinade consisting of garlic-infused olive oil, regular extra virgin olive oil, and lime juice and add 3 tbsp of seasoning to the marinade. See my upcoming Grilled Chicken Fajita Salad recipe for more specific details.
