Brava Taco Seasoning

This Brava Taco Seasoning will become a new favorite in your kitchen. It comes together in a pinch and adds major flavor to ground beef, chicken, or vegetables for taco night at home.
Prep Time5 mins


  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • optional: 2 teaspoons cornstarch or all-purpose flour


  • In small bowl, stir together chili powder, smoked paprika, cumin, kosher salt, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, and cornstarch or all-purpose flour if using.


  • This recipe yields about ½ cup of seasoning.
  • 1/4 cup of this seasoning works well with 1lb of protein, like our Crunchy Ground Beef Taco recipe.
  • Store in an airtight container in the pantry for up to 1 year.
  • Season both sides of protein before cooking. 
  • We recommend only seasoning the flesh side when cooking bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs, otherwise the seasoning may burn while the skin crisps.
