Low Sodium Taco Seasoning Recipe

Prep Time 10 minutes


  • 1 tsp red chili powder like cayenne
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp granulated garlic or garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 3/4 tbsp ground cumin seed
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano or ground oregano
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Crystal Diamond Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 tsp sugar**
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander seed


  1. Measure out all of the spices and cornstarch and place in a small bowl. Use a whisk (or fork) to thoroughly mix the ingredients until they’re well combined. You can taste the mixture and if desired adjust any of the ingredients to your taste.
  2. If not using right away store in an airtight container in a cool, dark place. The mix will keep fresh for a couple of weeks and after will begin loosing it’s flavor.

Recipe Notes

Sugar is added to help boost the flavor of the spices. This seasoning is a medium-spicy level so if you’d like a milder version cut the red chili powder in half or more as desired.
