Bold & Flavorful Taco Seasoning

Two words: Taco Tuesday.
There’s a lot to love about tacos. They’re versatile and can be paired with just about anything. But where did tacos come from? And how did we fall in love with this iconic comfort food?

Who Invented Tacos?

It is believed that tacos originated from ancient Mexico—long before the Spanish arrived in the 16th century. However, the taco as we know it looked a lot different during its ancient beginnings. Instead of lettuce, cheese, sour cream, and guac, ancient Mexicans filled flat corn tortillas with fish and other animal organs.

The word “taco” is a bit newer. Mexican miners coined this term in the 18th century after the word “taquito,” which resembled the taquito-shaped covering of gunpowder. This began the humble start of the street taco: a portable food that became popular among working-class Mexicans.

Today, tacos are a worldwide staple for breakfast, lunch, and dinner thanks to our ready-to-sprinkle taco seasoning range.

What Should I Put in Tacos?

It doesn’t matter if it’s Tuesday or Thursday—tacos are the perfect meal to serve, regardless of the day or occasion. Some of the most popular taco toppings include:

  • Ground Beef or Fish
  • Guacamole
  • Refried Beans & Rice
  • Lettuce & Tomatoes
  • Pico De Gallo
  • Salsa & Hot Sauce
  • Sour Cream
  • Cheese

And of course, don’t forget to spice up your meat with the right taco seasoning!


Taco seasoning generally consists of a blend of various spices and herbs. While the exact ingredients of this Mexican seasoning may vary, some common ingredients include:

  • Chili powder
  • Paprika
  • Garlic powder
  • Cumin
  • Oregano
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Cayenne pepper


In our expert’s opinion, the best chicken taco seasoning is El Jefe’s taco seasoning. This blend of chipotle, honey and hickory pairs exceptionally well with grilled chicken and truly enhances its natural flavor.

What Should I Serve With Tacos?

Tacos may be the star, but the side dishes make them shine. Serve your tacos with classic sides like:

  • Chips and Salsa
  • Eloté (Mexican Street Corn)
  • Mexican Coleslaw
  • Mango Slaw

How to Cook Ground Beef for Tacos

Taco toppings make your tacos pop, but what’s a great taco without a solid foundation? Cook ground meat according to your crowd size. For example, you’ll need about five ounces of ground beef per person.

Brown your beef until it is no longer pink. Once fully browned, add in bold aromatics from our selection of flavorful taco seasonings and rubs.

Our favorite? El Jefe’s taco seasoning for a classic blend of chipotle, honey and hickory.
