  • 1tbsp plain flour
  • 1/4 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1 stalk fresh oregano, chopped or 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano if storing


Combine all ingredients together in a mixing bowl.


  • No purchased taco mix for me! Making this from scratch is super-easy and lets you control the ‘hotness’ content for your kids.
  • If you make a double batch of this mixture, you’ll be able to whip up a quick-fix dinner on another night. Just store the mixture in a sealed container to keep it safe from moisture.
